Background The students have worked with patters in second grade and previously this year. The teacher has experience using the SMART Board for presenting and has been teaching math for some time now. The students have experience using Pages and Edmodo. Students Nicolas, Emily B., and Adam are diagnosed with ADHD; Kyle has an emotional disorder and is diagnosed with a learning disorder in mathematics; Theodor, Nico, and Adam will need assistance with directions; Michael has been reported to be advanced in Mathematics. Standards and Objectives Standard 1: Grade 2, Strand NBT, Standard #2, CC.2.NBT.2 Understand place value. Count within 1000; skip-count by 5s, 10s, and 100s Objective 1: Students will practice the idea of skip counting through number patterns. Standard 2: Creativity and Innovation Students demonstrate creative thinking, construct knowledge, and develop innovative products and processes using technology. Students: a. apply existing knowledge to generate new ideas, products, or processes. b. create original works as a means of personal or group expression. c. use models and simulations to explore complex systems and issues. d. identify trends and forecast possibilities. Objective 2: Students will create their own patterns, as many as possible, using the numbers provided using their iPads. Standard 3: Communication and Collaboration Students use digital media and environments to communicate and work collaboratively, including at a distance, to support individual learning and contribute to the learning of others. Students: b. communicate information and ideas effectively to multiple audiences using a variety of media and formats. Objective 3: Students will share their findings of patterns with the class using their iPads.
