Module 5 - Math 1A - Course Guide


Module Overview:

In this module students will tell time on a clock by the hour. Students will compare figures and group them into sets and work with numeral equivalents. Students will identify a point's location using the words inside and outside. Students will create equivalent but easier or known sums up to 10. Students will learn to subtract two numbers with a minuend less than 6.

Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 The Hour Extend this lesson by using a real analog clock. Throughout the day, at hour marks, ask your student to read the clock and tell what time it is.
2 Even or Odd Extend this lesson by having your student group various small objects into even and odd groups.
3 Position Words: Inside or Outside Extend this lesson by playing a game of Simon Says with your student. When giving directions, use the position words from this lesson.
4 Equivalent Sums To extend this lesson, get a set of dice, paper, and a pencil. Have your student roll both dice. Whatever they roll, they need to think of an equivalent sum for what they rolled. For example, if they roll a 2 and a 3, which equals 5, they could say 4+1=5. If they say a correct equivalent sum, they earn a point. If they cannot think of an equivalent sum, they lose a point. The game ends when they reach 10 points.
5 Take Away the Veggies Extend this activity using dice. Please have your student roll a pair of dice and write a subtraction problem for what they rolled. Have them solve the problem. For example, if they roll a 4 and a 2, they would write 4-2=2.

Module Guiding Questions:

When a student starts a lesson ask them questions to check for prior knowledge and understanding and to review concepts being taught. At the end of the lesson ask the questions again to see if their answer changes.

Lesson Title Question
The Hour
  1. What do you use to tell time?
Even or Odd
  1. What numbers are even?
  2. What numbers are odd?
Position Words: Inside or Outside
  1. How can you tell if you are inside or outside your house?
Equivalent Sums
  1. How do you know if two sums are equal?
Take Away the Veggies
  1. What does it mean to subtract?
  2. What is the minuend?
  3. What is the subtrahend?
  4. What is the difference?

Module Video Questions:

When a student watches a video take time to ask them questions about what they watched. Suggested questions for the videos in this module are listed here. Suggestion: Have the student watch the entire video first all the way through. Then have them watch the video a second time, as they watch it pause the video and ask the questions.

Lesson Title Video Question
Position Words: Inside or Outside Inside or Outside
  1. In their math notebook have your student draw the shapes in the video showing the location of the dot with each shape.

Module Suggested Read Aloud Books:

Take time to read to your student or have them read aloud to you. Read a different book each day. While reading the book point out concepts being taught. You may purchase these books or find them at your local library. Suggested things to discuss while reading the book:

  • What is the main idea?
  • What are three things new you learned?
  • How does this book relate to what you are learning about?
