Lesson Length: 30 - 40 mins
Topic: Operations and Algebraic Thinking; Analyze Patterns and Relationships of Ordered Pairs
Grade Level: 5
Standards / Framework:
Brief Description: Students will create a numerical pattern using a given rule and apply to generate ordered pairs. Students will explain the relationship between the numbers.
Know Before You Start: This lesson would be useful after an introduction to numerical patterns and ordered pairs.
- Read and discuss the sample comic.
- What rule is Professor McBean’s machine following?
- Use the table linked in the Resources section to show the ordered pairs depicted in the comic.
Students will discuss and explain the relationship between the x and y in an ordered pair.
Students can practice generating ordered pairs using two given rules, e.g., starting with 0, add 4 and starting with 0, add 6.
Using the sample comic and the table as a guide, students will depict three ordered pairs in a comic. Have students explain the relationship between the numbers in the final panel.
Have students create their own comic with a different numerical pattern.
- Have students work in pairs to check their work.
Allow students to use the speech-to-text feature.
Allow students to create their comic in their home language.
Allow students to work with a peer model.
