Lesson Plan: Equations and Inequalities - Grade Five - Grade 05
Grade:05
Summary:In this lesson, students create and interpret equations and inequalities within the text of problem situations. The pre-assessment is an informal activity in which students match a statement to the appropriate equation or inequality. The post-assessment is an informal paper-and-pencil tool assessing students? ability to correctly interpret and create equations and inequalities within the text of a story problem. This is a four-part lesson. The first and second sections involve students? understanding of interpreting equations through class discussions and creating equations on their own. The third and fourth sections involve students? understanding of interpreting inequalities through class discussions and creating inequalities on their own.
