Lesson Plan : Basic Arithmetic Skills

Teacher Name:
 Ms. Camille Patterson
 Grade 7-8

 Basic Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, and Division
 Math 7: Basic Addition, Basic Subtraction, Basic Multiplication, Basic Division, Whole numbers, Place Value, Multiplication Table, Multiplication Facts
 The aim of this lesson is to review and assess the Basic Skills of the students. The goal is to identify students whose weakness may be with adding, subtracting, multiplying, or dividing whole numbers.
 The objective is to insure that each student in Math 7 has the ability to add, subtract, multiply, and divide whole numbers. We will start the assessment by adding: ones, then ones and tens, tens and tens, tens and hundreds, hundreds and hundreds. We will continue the assessment by subtracting: ones, then ones and tens, tens and tens, tens and hundreds, hundreds and hundreds. Then, we will move to multiplying: ones, then ones by tens, tens by tens, tens by hundreds, hundreds by hundreds. We will close the lesson by dividing: ones, tens by ones, tens by tens, hundreds by tens, hundreds by hundreds.
 Basic Skills worksheets that range in levels from 1 to 10.
 The teacher will explain to the students in Math 7 the importance of gaining mastery of the basic skills set in Mathematics. The key to Mathematics is to have a strong foundation on which to build later, more complex skills.
 Students will practice by using in-class worksheets, completing mathematical problems on the board, and by doing homework.
Checking For Understanding:
 The class size is small. Students who need extra help will receive it, through individualized instruction from the teacher. The teacher will use the assessment tools collected from the students to determine where the problems, if any, exist with the students.
 The lesson will end once every student has obtained at minimum, 80% mastery of the basic skills set. Students that obtain mastery before others may move on to the next level. Students who do not obtain this level of mastery will receive accomodations and differentiated instruction from the teacher.
 The teacher used a basic skills packet to assess the student's individualized mastery of the basic skills set.
Teacher Reflections:
 Every student in Math 7 is capable of moving on to the next level of Mathematics.
