Module 2  Math 4A  Course Guide
Module Overview:
In this module students will learn to factor. They will learn about prime numbers, common multiples, and composite numbers. Students will learn to identify basic patterns and learn about arithmetic number patterns. They will learn about Tcharts, place value and estimation, and multiplying 10 and 100.

1  Factoring  
2  Prime Numbers  On index cards write various numbers down. Flash a number to your student and have them identify if it is a prime number or not. If they say it is prime, ask them to explain why. 
3  Common Multiples  In this lesson use the numbers you wrote on index cards for prime numbers and show them to your student. Ask the student to name multiples of each number. 
4  Composite Numbers  Use the number cards you created from the previous lessons and have your student identify which ones are prime and composite. Ask them to explain why the number is prime or composite. 
5  Basic Patterns  Have your student draw the different types of patterns (AB, AAB, ABC, etc) in their Math notebook. 
6  Arithmetic Number Patterns  On page 5 of this lesson steps are given to help a student find the rule in a number pattern. Have your student create a chart listing the steps given. Title the chart “Finding the Rule in a Number Pattern”. Have your student explain their chart and put the chart some place where they have access to it when needed. 
7  TCharts  In their Math notebook have your student describe what a TChart is and how it is used. 
8  Rounding  After your student completes this lesson have them create a chart that summarizes the rules for rounding. Ask them to explain their chart and put it in a location where they can refer to it as needed. 
9  Estimating  In this lesson have your student complete the practice activity first before looking at the answer key. Be sure to monitor this. When they check their answers using the key have them circle what they got wrong and talk about why they got it wrong and make corrections. 
10  Place Value  In this lesson have your student complete the practice activity first before looking at the answer key. Be sure to monitor this. When they check their answers using the key have them circle what they got wrong and talk about why they got it wrong and make corrections. If your student is having a hard time understanding place value make a chart showing place value like the one on page 8 of this lesson, place the chart someplace where the student can refer to it if needed. 
11  Multiplying by 10 and 100  Give your student 5 numbers and have them multiply each number by 10 and 100. Have them write their answers in their Math notebook. 
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.

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.

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?
