Module 1 - Math 4A - Course Guide
In this module students will write multiplication equations and will learn multiplication comparisons. Students will solve equations with an unknown and will identify parts of word problems. Students will translate comparisons into equations with an unknown and solve. Students will learn about Interpretation, estimation strategies, and remainders.

Learning Coach Notes:
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.
|Solving Basic Equations||
|Parts of a Word Problem||
|Translation into Equations||
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?
