* *Reflection: Adjustments to Practice
End of Grade Review - The Number System - Section 2: Explore

I found all of the problems to be important, and I did not want to take any out, so I actually completed this activity over the course of two days. Just for fun, when the kids came in the second day I had the markers inside the socks and asked them to just grab a sock for their table - the color of their marker would be their new team color for the remainder of the game (I save a version of the smart file for each class so that the scores were in tact). I love to add excitement and fun to the lessons - so this was a way to really get the kids going. In one class the group that got the "bad marker" (lowest points) actually pulled through and made it the winner!

# End of Grade Review - The Number System

Lesson 1 of 11

## Objective: Students will be able to apply rules for operating with all signed rational numbers.

*67 minutes*

#### Launch

*10 min*

**Opener: **As students enter the room, they will immediately pick up and begin working on the opener – **Instructional Strategy - Process for openers**. This method of working and going over the opener lends itself to allow students to construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others, which is **mathematical practice 3.**

**Learning Target:** After completion of the opener, I will address the day’s learning targets to the students. In today’s lesson, the intended target is, “I can solve problems using operations with fractions.” Students will jot the learning targets down in their agendas (our version of a student planner, there is a place to write the learning target for every day).

Number System Review: As a way to review working with signed numbers, students will be split into 4 groups, and given a sock, white board, and a marker (red, blue, black, or green). Their marker color will be their team color. Students will work with their group to complete problems pertaining to working with rational numbers, and groups that are successful will spin for points after each problem.
