Lesson Plan : Fractions & Line Graphs
Teacher Name: | Stacey Corso |
Grade: | Grade 9-10 |
Subject: | Math |
Topic: | Math 10- Algebra- Fractions |
Content: | Understanding fractions, decimals, percent, line graph |
Goals: | Standard 3: Mathematics Students will understand mathematics and become mathematically confident by communicating and reasoning mathematically, by applying mathematics in real-world settings, and by solving problems through the integrated study of number systems, geometry, algebra, data analysis, probability, and trigonometry. |
Objectives: | MST 3:1- Students will be able to understand, represent, and use numbers in a variety of equivalent forms (integer, fraction, decimal, percent, exponential, expanded and scientific notation) |
Materials: | data/charts graph paper colored pencils calculators rulers |
Introduction: | The students will be asked to convert fraction test scores to decimals and then again to percentages. The percentages will be used to construct a line graph comparing the success of two mock students. The class will review the purpose of fractions and their equivalence to decimals and percentages at the start of class. |
Development: | The teacher will demonstrate the activity while "thinking-aloud". Each step will be modeled for the class. Once the demonstration is over, the students will be asked to complete the activity on thier own. |
Practice: | Each student will transfer numbers to the chart and then construct their own line graph. As the students work, the teacher will float to each desk to oversee their work. |
Accommodations: | This activity could take place over a series of two class periods, if needed, as opposed to one. The activity could be broken down to smaller activities. In addition, the lesson could be completed as a class, in small groups, in pairs, or individually. |
Checking For Understanding: | At the end of the lesson, each student will be asked to answer a series of comprehension questions independently. They will analyze their results and form conclusions. |
Closure: | At the close of class, the class will review the activity aloud. They will review the purpose of the fractions and their relation to decimals and percentages. |
