In this unit we have focused on Grade 5 Unit Algebraic thinking which includes

patterns and relations and solving various problems with whole numbers. In Grade 5, this unit

generally focuses on patterns and simple equations that show how patterns extend. The two

outcomes that our lessons aim to teach are:

PR1: Determine the pattern rule to make predictions about subsequent terms;

PR2: Solve problems involving single-variable, one-step equations with whole number

coefficients and whole number solutions.

We decided as a group to include four lessons that would last approximately 50

minutes each, but we also understand that it is quite possible that students will not grasp the

concepts or that lessons may carry on to the next day depending on the pace at which

students are learning. It can be very difficult for students to grasp the concepts that we are

proposing here, however, we have decided to use real life examples as often as possible in

order to make the situations more relatable for students. This unit would most likely take

place around April or May to ensure that there is plenty of time for the students to grasp the

big ideas and become experts in the practice.

We also find it crucial to stress the importance of using manipulatives in the lesson as

well as making them readily available to students. It should be normal in the classroom for

students to use manipulatives during Math class, not something that is viewed negatively by

the students.

[C, CN, PS, R, V]

Materials:

- individual white boards

- white board markers

- manipulatives (money representations)

- whiteboard or smartboard

Overview

This lesson will focus on teaching students that patterns extend infinitely and that we can tell

which numbers will come next by using the information that we know about the pattern already.

The main focus of this class will be letting students use manipulatives to solve the problems that

they are faced with.

Previous Learning

At this point in time, students have already been introduced to patterns and it has been an ongoing

process since first grade, each year progressively more complex. Students have already been

exposed to these types of problem solving, real-life context algebra problems.

Steps in Lesson

Engaging Question: (5 minutes) Show students a pattern and ask them if they think the pattern

stops at some point and, if so, where? Then discuss with them the idea that patterns go on much

further than we can see, and that there is always a way for us to understand where the pattern will

go next.

Exploration: (20 minutes) At this time, I would ask each team (students are seated in teams of 4)

to retrieve their white board from their desks as well as a dry erase marker from their rubbermaid

tote. When all students have a white erase board and a dry erase marker, ask them to pay attention

to the problem that you are showing on the board.

To bake cookies for a school bake sale, the quantities of ingredients in the recipe must be

determined for multiple batches of cookies. If 2 spoonfuls of sugar and 3 spoonfuls of flour is

needed for one batch, how much is needed for 4 batches? 7 batches?

Ask students to draw out the problem on their whiteboards. This is important because we want to

make sure that the students are understanding, and teaching in a concrete way works best. I will be

circulating at this time to check for understanding and help those who are not quite there yet. Once

groups have finished the first question, move on to the second, which involves the manipulatives.

Show students a table that shows the relationship between the number of students going to a movie

and the total cost of the tickets. Have students describe the relationship between the students and

the cost using a mathematical expression. Use the pattern to determine the number of students at

the movie if the tickets cost $98.

Ask students to use the manipulatives (fake money) and add up the money as if they are actually

going to the movies.

Elaboration: (20 minutes)

To elaborate, have students come up to the front and share with the class the methods that they

used in order to answer the problems. Allow each team to have a turn as long as they want to share.

This allows the students to solidify their learning and helps those who do not quite understand yet

because they are seeing it taught by their peers (whose language might be more understandable).

Evaluation: (5 minutes)

Ask students to complete a 2 wishes and a star form and hand it in as they leave class.

2 wishes = 2 things that they wished they knew more about/understood better.

1 star = 1 thing that they liked or understood.

These can be used to check for understanding as well as to possibly modify/accommodate the

lesson for the next day.

Materials:

- Post-It Notes

- math notebooks

- pencils

- whiteboard or smartboard

- Laminated One Hundred Charts

- whiteboard markers

Overview

This lesson will focus on teaching students that patterns extend infinitely and that we can tell

which numbers will extend the pattern and why other numbers will not. The main focus of this

class will be to review the language and extension of patterns.

Previous Learning

This is an elaboration on yesterdays lesson. However, students need to be able to recollect their

experiences with patterns and have a deep understanding that patterns can be as simple as 2!, 3!,

4!. Students are expected to complete the questions and show, in math terms, how they can create a

pattern using what they know.

Steps in Lesson

Engaging Question: (5 minutes)

As an extension from yesterday, patterns can be found in our everyday life.

Ask students to jot-pair-share a pattern that was discussed in yesterdays class. Today students will

extend patterns by finding the missing elements.

Students are given laminated one hundred charts and a whiteboard marker to use when visualizing

the patterns given. For example, if students need to extend a pattern that is 33, 35,

Exploration: (10 minutes)

As a whole group have students fill in the following blanks on the Smartboard and have students fill

in missing terms (elements) from number sequences and identify the pattern rules.

a. 1, 4, ____, 16, ___, 36 (n ! n)

b. 18, 16, 14, ____, ____

c. 2.4, 2.7, ____ , ____ , 3.6

Discuss the requirements of creating and extending a pattern.

Elaborate: (15 minutes)

Tier 1:

Extend the missing element in the following patterns:

20, 22, 24,_____, 26

100, 103, 106, 109, ____, ____, 118

118, 122, 126, 130, ____, ____,____...

Tier 2:

Circle in red crayon which two patterns complete an extending pattern

2,4,6,8,10.

3,6,9,12.

24,26,28

Circle in blue the two sets of numbers that extend a pattern

(n + 1), ((n + 2), (n + 3), (n + 4)...

(n + 5), ((n + 6), (n + 7), (n + 8)...

(n + 33), (n + 35), (n + 37), (n + 39)...

Tier 3:

Ask students to explain whether 84 would be included in each of the following patterns and

why it should be included:

a. 1, 3, 5, 7

b. 4, 8, 12, 16

c. 200, 192, 184, 176

Does the number 73 fit in the following patterns, explain why or why not?

77, 80, 83

61, 64, 67, 70,

22, 23, 24, 25

*If students finish early have them compare with their partner groups and explain how they got their

answers. This would have been modeled early in the year.

Evaluation: (5 minutes)

Exit slip for the day is to have students create an extended pattern write on a Post-It Note and place

on the what I have learned today board with their name on the back.

These can be used to check for understanding as well as to possibly modify the lesson for the next

day.

Algebraic Thinking

#3: Variables

NCTM Standards:

Represent and analyze mathematical situations and

structures using algebraic symbols

identify such properties as commutativity, associativity, and

distributivity and use them to compute with whole numbers;

represent the idea of a variable as an unknown quantity using

a letter or a symbol;

express mathematical relationships using equations.

Time Required: 50

minutes

Instructional Groupings

Whole Group - Introduction of concept and recap of lesson.

Small Group - Worksheet activity in partners, individual journal

entry.

NB Curriculum Outcomes Targeted

PR2: Solve problems involving single-variable, one-step equations with whole number coefficients

and whole number solutions. [C, CN, PS, R]

Materials:

Whiteboard, Counters/Pattern blocks, Attached worksheet, Students math journals.

Overview:

The purpose of this lesson is to introduce the concept of variables.

Steps in Lesson

Engaging Question: (20 minutes)

Try to use white board space efficiently so that following examples dont need to be erased and

can be used as a reference point when students are doing individual work.

Tell the class that a student was given the following problem to solve: There were some students

on a bus and 12 got off. Now there are 14 left on the bus. Now many students were originally on

the bus?

To solve the problem, the student wrote this equation: b 12 = 14. Why did they use a letter in the

equation?

Discuss:

- The letter represents an unknown number/value.

- When we have unknowns in an equation we call them variables.

- Variables are usually represented by letter of the alphabet.

- How do we solve this equation? We need to make both sides equal.

*Do not rush the discussion.

As a class write an equation for the following problem, solve it, then ask students if there is

another possible equation that could be written for the same problem: There are now 15 apples in a

basket. There were 24 at the start. Some have been eaten. How many apples have been eaten?

Exploration: (10 minutes)

In pairs, have students complete the attached worksheet. They may use the coloured counters or

pattern blocks to help them solve the equations. Each student is responsible to fill out a

worksheet.

Elaboration: (10 minutes)

Allow a few minutes for students to find a different partner to compare their answers/strategies

with. Then go over the worksheet as a class, asking students to share how they found their

answers. If time is running short, focus on questions students found difficult.

Evaluation: (10 minutes)

Write the following question on the white board and have the students answer it in their math

journals (they do not need to copy it down, just answer): What is a variable? Use words and an

equation to explain.

and whole number solutions. [C, CN, PS, R]

Materials:

units

cue cards

Overview

Students will become familiar with the role of a coefficient in an unknown equation

Previous Learning

Students have already become familiar with solving for an unknown variable in addition and

subtraction equations. Now they will develop a new strategy for solving an equation when the

unknown is present more than once.

Steps in Lesson

Engaging Question: (5 minutes)

What if our unknown exists more than once in an equation?

Weve had experience in solving for our unknown variable, but can we solve an equation where

there is more than one of the unknown variable?

Write the following equation on the white board: n + n = 20

-What do we know about the variables? Are they represented by a different letter, or the same

one? If they are they same letter, what do you think that means about the value of each?

-So, we know that the variables on the left side of our equations are the same number, what

number can we add two of to get 20? What number goes into 20 twice?

-Use manipulatives such as units or counters to see if you can split 20 into two equal groups,

our two equal variables.

Exploration: (20 minutes)

So, we know that we can solve an equation with more than one variable if the variable is the same.

Did you know that there is also a simpler way to look at this equation?

If I have these (hold up two markers), do I say to you that I have a marker plus a marker? or a

marker and a marker? How do I express to you how many markers I have, how many variables I

have? (wait until students tell you that you should say I have two markers)

Variables in equations can be expressed the same way. With your elbow partner, discuss a

different way that you could say n plus n. (expect answers like two ns)

When we want to show that we have two of one variable in an equation, we simply put a 2 in front

of it (re-write the equation as 2n = 20 on the board)

The 2 is called a coefficient. A coefficient shows us how many of our variable we have.

Write the equation y + y + y = 12 on the board. Ask students to turn to their elbow partner and

discuss a different way they could write this equation.

Discuss possible answers - have a volunteer come up to write 3y = 12 on the board.

Can someone tell me what my variable is? Can someone tell me what my co-efficient is?

So, if I have the equation 5d = 25, what would this look like as an addition sentence? See if you

and your elbow partner can use the coefficient to figure out what this would look like if we were

showing them being added altogether.

Elaboration: (20 minutes)

Now that we have begun to understand what a coefficient is and what it does, work with your

elbow partner to use your manipulatives (units, counters, whatever you choose) to represent how

you can solve the last two equations we looked at: 3y = 12 and 5d = 25

If students are having trouble, remind them to think that all of the variables are the same, so all of

the numbers they add together will be the same. Encourage them to come up with strategies as to

how they can ensure that all of the numbers they develop will be the same.

If they are starting with 12 counters, how can the make sure that the 3 numbers that they break

those counters up into will be equal (make 3 piles, putting one counter in each pile at a time)

If students come up with new strategies, encourage them to share them with the rest of the class.

Ask pairs to join another pair (making groups of 4) and discuss what number they found the

variable to represent.

Come back together as a class, and solve the problems together using counters on the SmartBoard.

Ask the students to make sure that they have the right answer written down in their notebooks

Evaluation: (5 minutes)

Give each student a cue card and ask them to solve the following exit slip question

W + W + W + W + W = 20

-Express this equation in a simpler form with a coefficient

-Solve for the value of the variable using a manipulative of your choice (counters, units, etc)
