What Standards (national or
state) relate to this lesson?

Name: _Daniela

Lesson Content
MACC.5.NBT.1.2- Explain patterns in the number of zeros of the product when multiplying a
number by powers of 10, and explain patterns in the placement of the decimal point when a
decimal is multiplied or divided by a power of 10. Use whole-number exponents to denote
powers of 10.
MACC.5.NBT.2.7- Add, subtract, multiply, and divide decimals to hundredths, using concrete
models or drawings and strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the
relationship between addition and subtraction; relate the strategy to a written method and
explain the reasoning used.

Essential Understanding
(What is the big idea or
essential question that you
want students to come away
with? In other words, what,
aside from the standard and our
objective, will students
understand when they finish
this lesson?)

Chapter 5 Essential Question:


- How can you solve decimal division problems?

Objectives- What are you


teaching?
(Student-centered: What will
students know and be able to
do after this lesson? "C: Given a
sentence written in the past or
present tense, A: the student B:
will be able to re-write the
sentence in future tense D: with
no errors in tense or tense
contradiction (i.e., I will see her
yesterday.)."

Students will be able to:


- Model division of decimals by whole numbers
- Estimate decimal questions
- Divide decimals by whole numbers
- Place the decimal point in decimal division
- Solve multistep decimal problems

Rationale
Address the following
questions:
Why are you teaching this

I am teaching this because I want students to learn how to use decimals in division. This is
important for students to learn this concept so that they can build on these skills as they
continue to practice more complex math as they get older. It is also an important concept
because it is a skill that is used in real life especially when managing money.

objective?
Where does this lesson fit
within a larger plan?
Why are you teaching it
this way?
Why is it important for
students to learn this
concept?
Evaluation Plan- How will
you know students have
mastered your objectives?

Name: _Daniela

Formative Evidence- I will be walking around the room during the activity to make sure that
students understand the activity. After each question, I will go over the problem if several
students are having trouble with a certain problem.

Address the following:


What formative evidence
will you use to document
student learning during this
lesson?
What summative evidence
will you collect, either
during this lesson or in
upcoming lessons?

Summative Evidence- Students can take the Chapter 5 Extra Practice worksheet out of
their workbook to do extra practice. The next day, students will be taking the Chapter 5 Test
in class, which will be collected and graded.

What Content Knowledge is


necessary for a teacher to
teach this material?

A teacher must have adequate content knowledge about:


- Division
- Decimal numbers
- How to divide decimals
- How to estimate numbers
- How to use patterns or models to demonstrate division

What background
knowledge is necessary for
a student to successfully
meet these objectives?
How will you ensure
students have this previous
knowledge?

Students must have background knowledge about:


- Numbers and operations in base ten
- Generalizing place value understanding for multi-digit whole numbers
- Using place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit
arithmetic
How will you ensure students have this previous knowledge?

Name: _Daniela

I will open the lesson by prompting the students to think about what they have been
learning throughout chapter 5. I will go over key words and vocabulary to activate their
prior knowledge.

Students may have misconceptions about how to:


- Move the decimal point in the correct direction when finding the quotient
- Correctly estimate the quotient of the decimal and the number
- Correctly divide the decimal by the whole number

Lesson Implementation
Partner work
Cooperative learning
Review game

Each content area may require a different step-by-step format. Use whichever plan is
appropriate for the content taught in this lesson. For example, in science, you would detail
the 5 Es here (Engage/Encountering the Idea; Exploring the Idea; Explanation/Organizing the
Idea; Extend/Applying the Idea; Evaluation).

In this lesson, I will be using kahoot to integrate technology into the class. Kahoot is a
game-based classroom response system where you can create and play quizzes. The
students will be using ipods to respond to the quiz.
1. I will start the lesson by activating students prior knowledge and telling them to
think about what theyve learned throughout chapter 5. This is where I will
include the days objective and essential question.
2. Because this is a review game, I want my students to think about all new
concepts and key words theyve learned.
a. I will reiterate chapter vocabulary such as compatible numbers, estimate,
and divide as well as write them on the board

groups and how will you


determine the grouping?
How will students transition
between activities?
What will you as the teacher
do?
What will the students do?
What student data will be
collected during each
phase?
What are other adults in the
room doing? How are they
supporting students
learning?
What model of co-teaching
are you using?

What will you do if

3. I will then pass out materials, such as whiteboards, markers, and ipods. While
doing this I will go over the rules and instructions for using the ipods. If there is
any misuse of the technology we will simply quite using it and just use the
whiteboards.
4. Now I will have students join the Kahoot game I have created with the provided
pin. https://play.kahoot.it/#/k/d9bb3db0-ee46-4d50-84f6-db661993e709
5. Students will have 120 seconds to complete each question. There are a total of
20 questions in the review game. The quickest and most accurate students will
receive the most points.
6. If many students miss a question I will go over that problem before moving on
the next question.
7. At the end of the review game, there will be a first, second, and third place
winner.
8. Before they get their prizes, there will be a chance to answer some bonus
questions (H.O.T. Questions).
a. How is dividing with decimals similar to dividing with whole numbers?
b. How can patterns and models help you solve decimals division problems?
c. How do you know where to place a decimal point in a quotient?
d. How do you know the correct number of decimal places in a quotient?
e. What is one way you can check your answer that we learned in the
chapter?
9. These questions will be worth extra points.
10. After I am done with the game, I will collect the materials and clean up.
11. If time permits, students may start working on their homework or read quietly.
a student struggles with the content?
If I notice that there are students struggling with a problem I will work through it with the
whole class to ensure that everyone understands it and to clear any misconceptions.
Students will also be in pairs so that they can help each other if they are struggling
a student masters the content quickly?
I will have bonus questions at the end of the review game to prompt further understanding of
the concepts from Chapter 5.

Meeting your students


needs as people and as
learners

If applicable, how does this lesson connect to the interests and cultural
backgrounds of your students?
This chapter connects to students interests because it is very applicable to real life. Students
must be able to estimate or calculate prices whenever they are shopping or buying

something they want.

How will you differentiate instruction for students who need additional challenge
during this lesson (enrichment)?
Students who want more of a challenge may work alone instead of in partners. I will also have
bonus questions at the end of the review game to prompt further understanding of the
concepts from Chapter 5.
How will you differentiate instruction for students who need additional language
support?
ELL students do not need to answer verbally if they do not feel comfortable. They can use
their whiteboards to show their work.
Accommodations (If
needed)
(What students need specific
accommodation? List individual
students (initials), and then
explain the accommodation(s)
you will implement for these
unique learners.)

You can place lower level students with higher-level students so they can help each
other.
If needed, you can place students in groups of three.

Materials
(What materials will you use?
Why did you choose these
materials? Include any
resources you used. This can
also include people!)
