**Teacher Name: **
| Katie Vandenburg |

**Grade:**
| Grade 5 |

**Subject:**
| Math |

**Topic: **
| Initial intake of student's knowledge and computation skills. |

**Content: **
| Addition
Subtraction
Multiplication
Division
Assist student in completion of homework. |

**Goals: **
| Determine student's ability in solving addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division problems. |

**Objectives:**
| Student will demonstrate fluency in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of whole numbers.
Student will analyze and solve application problems and justify reasonableness of solution in problems involving addition and subtraction of: fractions, mixed numbers, and decimals. |

**Materials:**
| Pencil(s)
Notebook and/or scrap paper
Key Math 3 Written Computation Examination Booklet
Student's homework
Student Reference Textbook |

**Introduction:**
| Student will complete the Written Computation portion of the Key Math 3 Diagnostic Assessment.
Student will attempt completing his homework assignment independently. |

**Development:**
| When student becomes stuck on his homework, I will explain to him how to solve the problem. While explaining the problem, I will write the process I used to solve it on my own sheet of paper. |

**Practice:**
| Student will then recreate the solution to the homework problem, putting into practice the skills I just demonstrated for him. If he becomes stuck, he can reference my solution. |

**Accommodations:**
| If student still struggles, I will explain the process of solving the homework problem(s) to him again. |

**Checking For Understanding:**
| Student will then verbally explain to me the process we just used to solve the homework problem(s). |

**Closure:**
| I will double-check the student's homework with him. |

**Evaluation:**
| The student appears to struggle with the basic concepts of addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. He seems to have the most difficulty with multiplication and division. While completing the assessment and his homework, he often counted on his fingers to solve problems. Fractions and determining percentages from fractions also seem to be concepts he needs more practice in. |
