Module 25 - Math 1B - Course Guide


Module Overview:

In this module, students will determine probabilities based on data. Students will draw lines of symmetry on letters. Students will create animal figures using pattern blocks. Students will recognize a number series by 2's, 5's, and 10's. Students will calculate a number 1 more or 1 less than a given number.

Learning Coach Notes:

Lesson # Lesson Title Notes
1 25.1 Probability Further, explore probability with your student by doing a simple coin toss. Ask your student what the probability would be of getting heads when you flip a coin. Then flip the coin 10 times and have your student track how many times they get heads and tails.
2 25.2 Symmetry Try this out for fun with your student. Draw a butterfly on white paper, cut it out, and have your student use paint to paint designs on one side of the butterfly. Fold the butterfly in half and open it to see how the paint pattern repeated on the blank side.
3 25.3 Creating Figures Ask your student to name the kinds of shapes that are in pattern blocks.
4 25.4 Recognizing Number Series Gather a group of small objects, either pennies, counters, or small candy. Have your student count those objects by 2's, 5's, and 10's.
5 25.5 Calculate the Number Gather a set of number cards or make some using index cards (write the numbers 0 to 100 on index cards, one number on each card). Mix up the numbers. Show your student 1 number at a time. Have them add 1 more to the number, then have them subtract 1 less from the number. Repeat this multiple times.

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
25.1 Probability
  1. What is probability?
25.2 Symmetry
  1. What is symmetry?
25.3 Creating Figures
  1. Can you make animals out of pattern blocks?
25.4 Recognizing Number Series
  1. Can you count by 2's, 5's and 10's to 100?
25.5 Calculate the Number
  1. Can you add one more to a number?
  2. Can you subtract 1 less from a number?

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
25.1 Probability The Marble Bag
  1. What is the probability of pulling out a blue marble from the first bag?
  2. What is the probability of pulling out a red marble from the first bag?
  3. What is the probability of pulling a blue marble out of the second bag?
  4. What is the probability of pulling out a red marble from the second bag?
  5. What is the probability of pulling a blue marble out of the third bag?
  6. What is the probability of pulling out a red marble from the third bag?
25.2 Symmetry Butterflies
  1. What does symmetry mean?
25.3 Creating Figures Shape Animals at the Park
  1. Use your pattern blocks to create the animals created in this video.

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?

# Book Author Lexile Level
1 It's Probably Penny Loreen Leedy 530L
2 Bad Luck Brad Gail Herman 490L
3 Reese's Pieces Count By Fives Jerry Pallotta AD590L
