My Mathematics Lesson Plan 2- For a General or Special Education Class

Lesson Overview
Title: Problem Solving Using an Organized List
Author: Kerri Bolkcom
Subject: Mathematics
Duration: 35 minutes

Unit Description: This unit focuses on problem solving in Mathematics. This unit also focuses
on helping students to become competent and confident problem solvers.

Lesson Description for the Day: Students previously learned about the Four-Step method for
problem solving. Today, the lesson for the day will focus on the specific strategy of using organized lists
when problem solving. Students will learn to make use of an organized list to assist them in answering the
practice problems correctly

NY State Standards: Problem Solving Strand: Students will build new mathematical knowledge
through problem solving.

3.PS.1 – Explore, examine, and make observations about a social problem or mathematical
situation

3.PS.2 - Understand that some ways of representing a problem are more helpful than others

3.PS.3 - Interpret information correctly, identify the problem, and generate possible solutions

Goals:
Unit Goals - All students need to be able to understand the different strategies for
problem solving and how to use these strategies to successfully solve problems.

Lesson Goals: The goal of this lesson is to have students successfully create an
organized list to assist them in solving a word problem.

Materials: Math worksheet for each child; Plastic bag filled with materials for activity for
each child (each contains cut out doll, 2 cut out pants, 3 cut out shirts)

Methods:

Anticipatory Set: Before starting the lesson, I will review the children’s prior
knowledge on problem solving. In the previous days, children have learned about the Four-
Step method for problem solving. I will reiterate the four steps (FIND OUT what the
problem means and what question you must answer to solve it, CHOOSE a strategy that will
help solve the problem, SOLVE IT, and LOOK BACK).

Introduce and Model New Knowledge: I will now introduce the idea of
making an organized list to problem solve. I will review some examples of problem solving
by making use of an organized list together with the entire class.

Provide Guided Practice: For the class activity, I will hand out a math
worksheet to each child that has a cut out doll/outfits word problem. Along with the
worksheet, each student will be given a bag with materials for the activity. Each bag will
include a cut out doll, blue and black cut out pants, and red, green and yellow cut out shirts

Provide Independent Practice: Students will work independently on the
specific word problem given on the worksheet. They will be able to interact and make use of
the cut out doll and clothes, which will engage them in the lesson, and assist them in solving
the problem successfully

Wrap-Up: After all student’s have completed the problem, regain their attention and
review over the correct answers to the questions on the worksheet

Assessment: For homework, students are to complete the opposite side of the worksheet
which contains 2 more math word problems to solve. Students are to follow directions and
make an organized list to further assist them in solving the problem. They are to hand in the
assignment the following day, and I will be able to evaluate who has an efficient
understanding of problem solving using an organized list.
