### Interpret a Fraction as Division

5.NBT.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.

5.NF.35.NF.3 Interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by the denominator (a/b = a ÷ b). Solve word problems involving division of whole numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. For example, interpret 3/4 as the result of dividing 3 by 4, noting that 3/4 multiplied by 4 equals 3, and that when 3 wholes are shared equally among 4 people each person has a share of size 3/4. If 9 people want to share a 50-pound sack of rice equally by weight, how many pounds of rice should each person get? Between what two whole numbers does your answer lie?

This number sense lesson focuses on showing common decimal numbers as percents. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for assessments.

### Graph Linear Inequalities

This Common Core reasoning with equations and inequalities lesson teaches students how to graph linear inequalities in one variable. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for Common Core assessments. In this lesson, students will generate a solution set for linear (first degree) inequalities, interpret the solution set and express it graphically by determining the solution region, the non-solution region and the nature of the boundary line. In addition to the lesson, there are five pages of Independent Practice with questions modeled after the Common Core assessment items.

### Identify Land and Water on Maps

This American history lesson describes that Earth has two major parts: land and water. Students will identify the different locations using a map, and describe which is land and which is water.

### Assess the Evidence that Supports an Author's Argument

This Common Core reading informational text lesson covers how to assess the evidence that supports an author’s argument in informational text. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for Common Core assessments. In this lesson, students identify whether the evidence is accurate, appropriate, or adequate. In addition to the lesson, there are four pages of Independent Practice with questions modeled after the Common Core assessment items.

### Analyze how Cultural Experience is Reflected in World Literature

This Common Core reading literature lesson asks students to analyze how cultural experience is reflected in a work of literature from outside of the United States. In this lesson, students will identify elements of setting, plot, and character in a text, then analyze how these elements bring out cultural experience. In addition to the initial lesson, there are numerous pages of Independent Practice and Review with questions modeled after Common Core assessment items.

### Construct & Interpret Two-Way Frequency Tables

This Common Core conditional probability lesson teaches students how to construct and interpret two-way frequency tables. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for Common Core assessments. In this lesson, students will use data from a sample group relating to two different categories to estimate simple and conditional probabilities. Students will interpret data given in table and narrative forms and construct a two-way frequency table from the narrative data.. In addition to the lesson, there is one page of Independent Practice and three pages of periodic review with questions modeled after the Common Core assessment items.

### Find the Distance between Points on the Coordinate Plane

### Write Numerical Expressions Using Exponential Form

This Common Core expressions and equations lesson teaches students how to write numerical expressions using exponential form. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for Common Core assessments. In this lesson, students will use exponential form to represent different values. Students will also relate exponents to place value and develop other conceptual understandings of what exponents are. This lesson does not cover evaluating expressions with exponents. In addition to the lesson, there are four pages of Independent Practice with questions modeled after the Common Core assessment items.

### Compare Two Texts

This Common Core integration of knowledge and ideas reading lesson practices answering specific questions about text. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for Common Core assessments. This lesson contains who, when, and where questions. In Skill Development/Guided Practice, students are asked to tell which sentence they found the answer in. This prepares students to cite textual evidence. In addition to the lesson, there are multiple pages of independent practice and review with questions modeled after the Common Core assessment items.

### Summarize Text

This Common Core reading informational text lesson covers how to write a summary of a text. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for Common Core assessments. In this lesson, students will identify the central idea and key details of a passage, then write a brief summary using a checklist of what to include or not include. In addition to the lesson, there are four pages of Independent Practice with questions modeled after the Common Core assessment items.

### Identify Opposite Numbers on the Number Line

6.NS.6 Understand a rational number as a point on the number line. Extend number line diagrams and coordinate axes familiar from previous grades to represent points on the line and in the plane with negative number coordinates.

6.NS.6.A6.NS.6.A Recognize opposite signs of numbers as indicating locations on opposite sides of 0 on the number line; recognize that the opposite of the opposite of a number is the number itself, e.g., -(-3) = 3, and that 0 is its own opposite.

This Common Core number system lesson teaches students how to identify opposite numbers on the number line. The lesson includes research-based strategies and strategic questions that prepare students for Common Core assessments. In this lesson, students will identify numbers and their opposites on number lines. This is intended to expand upon students’ knowledge of positive and negative numbers.
