Fifth graders explore the concept of number sense and operations as it relates to handling money. In this number sense lesson, 5th graders work with change flashcards to practice giving the correct change in a money transaction. Students then perform more difficult problems relating to money exchange.
New! Listing Fractions in Increasing Size
Increase the depth of your class's fractional number sense with this number-ordering activity. Given four fractions, each with different numerators and denominators, young learners are asked to place them in order from smallest to largest. This challenging task encourages students to choose from three strategies for comparing fractions; using common denominators, common numerators, and benchmark fractions. Solutions will vary, so allow for a class discussion in which different approaches to solving the problem are shared.
Number Sense Worksheet
In this number sense worksheet, students find numbers that are between fractions, complete subtraction problems, complete multiplication problems and more. Students complete 6 problems.
Number and Number Sense
Learners be engaged in math activities that cover a variety of state and national standards. The lesson has the goal of increasing mathematical thinking which is also known as number sense.
Working With Number Sense
Students demonstrate their knowledge of numbers by translating written words into numerals and by working within groups to represent both small and large numbers. Groups can use anything in the classroom to represent their numbers.
Number Sense and Numeration
Students add and subtract integers. In this algebra activity, students discuss number sense as they sort numbers in the correct order. They analyze and label numbers differentiating between rational and irrational numbers.
Racing To The Finish- Number Sense Maze
In this racing to the finish number sense worksheet, 3rd graders work their way through a maze that includes getting a dirt bike to the finish line. They follow through the maze by going from each number to a greater number without crossing any lines.
Pizza Plans Number Sense Enrichment Worksheet
In this pizza party number sense enrichment worksheet, 4th graders decide which number sentence best answers the question in the first 3 multiple choice questions. They complete 1 rounding problem and 1 short answer problem.
Native American Culture: Counting, 1:1 Correspondence
Kindergarteners practice showing 1:1 correspondence while incorporating information they learned about a local Native American culture. The objects used for counting are taken from the previous day's Native American lesson. The intention is for them to use the newly-acquired vocabulary while building 1:1 correspondence and counting skills.
Dot Card and Ten Frame Activities
What fun, simple number value activities these are! Using dot cards and ten frames, 34 educational games are briefly described to help diversify these great strategies. For example, in the game "I Wish I Had..." the teacher holds up a value card and says, "I wish I had ___." The scholars then determine how many more dots are needed to fulfill the wish. Templates are available for dot cards, five frames, ten frames, and more!
You don't have to be an ancient Egyptian to decipher fractions in this activity that focuses on adding fractions with unlike denominators and developing fraction number sense. Egyptians represented fractions differently than we do. They expressed fractions through expressions using unit fractions in which no two denominators were alike: e.g., 2/3 was written as 1/2 + 1/6. Fifth graders are asked to solve two sets of problems on this worksheet: the first set constructs fractions and the second deconstructs fractions. A formal lesson plan is not included, but the information on the three-page document is complete and ready to use in the classroom.
Adding fractions with unlike denominators can be cloudy, but attaching the fractions to real-life math can add to fraction number sense. Alex needed to run only a mile, will completing the training in two segments satisfy this requirement? Yes, it will. Especially when Alex ran 1/2 mile to his friend's house and 5/8 mile to his grandma's house. There are two ways to solve this problem and both are explained on the commentary pages. The activity would be either a great lead-in to working with fractions, or a quick check-in for understanding.
Real Number Sense
Fifth graders put each number they receive in the appropriate order in a number line or a number circle. In this numbers lesson plan, 5th graders develop number sense and manipulate the numbers in order.
Do You Have Number Sense?
Seventh graders are grouped according to their ability level with a captain who is elected by the students in that particular group. Students demonstrate their knowledge of rational and irrational numbers by defining them. Students use a venn diagram to show where the fraction would belong. Students discuss their answers with other classmates. The venn diagrams will be submitted for a grade. Students then share what they learned from this activity
