Tarleton State University’s Expected Lesson Cycle

Clinical Teacher’s Name: Katelyn Veteto Subject/Grade: Math 6th grade

TEKS Addressed:

(3) Number and operations. The student applies mathematical process standards to represent

addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division while solving problems and justifying

solutions. The student is expected to:

(A) recognize that dividing by a rational number and multiplying by its reciprocal result

in equivalent values;

(D) add, subtract, multiply, and divide integers fluently; and

(E) multiply and divide positive rational numbers fluently.


Given the notes and vocabulary, the students will multiply and divide positive rational numbers

to find the correct solutions.

CCRS Addressed:

I. Numeric Reasoning

B. Number operations

1. Perform computations with real and complex numbers

II. Algebraic Reasoning

A. Expressions and equations

1. Explain and differentiate between expressions and equations using words

such as “solve,” “evaluate,” and “simplify.”

B. Manipulating expressions

1. Recognize and use algebraic (field) properties, concepts, procedures,

and algorithms to combine, transform, and evaluate expressions (e.g.,

polynomials, radicals, rational expressions).

ELPS Addressed:

c.1. (E) internalize new basic and academic language by using and reusing it in meaningful ways

in speaking and writing activities that build concept and language attainment

c.2. (E) use visual, contextual, and linguistic support to enhance and confirm understanding of

increasingly complex and elaborated spoken language

c.3. (J) respond orally to information presented in a wide variety of print, electronic, audio, and

visual media to build and reinforce concept and language attainment.

Technology Application (taken from the TEKS):

(5) Digital citizenship. The student practices safe, responsible, legal, and ethical behavior while

using technology tools and resources. The student is expected to:

(A) understand copyright principles, including current laws, fair use guidelines, creative

commons, open source, and public domain

(B) practice ethical acquisition of information and standard methods for citing sources;

(C) practice safe and appropriate online behavior, personal security guidelines, digital

identity, digital etiquette, and acceptable use of technology; and

(D) understand the negative impact of inappropriate technology use, including online

bullying and harassment, hacking, intentional virus setting, invasion of privacy, and

piracy such as software, music, video, and other media.

This lesson was an interesting one to teach. The intro activity made students think. I did

not give them any information on how multiplying and dividing fractions worked. We had just

moved on from adding and subtracting so most of the students tried to get the denominators to a

common denominator. After a couple minutes I put a hint on the smart board but did not verbally

tell the students. Once a student noticed it, is was smooth sailing from there. Again, I did not give

the students any advice on dividing fractions. I was really trying to access their prior knowledge.

As expected, the students treated dividing fractions, just as they did with multiplying fractions.

Again, after a few minutes, I placed another hint on the board (KCF) and the students did not

understand that. The focus went as expected and I was able to assess my student’s prior knowledge.

When delivering the lesson, I taught all the multiplication fraction strategies and then all of the

division strategies. The students did great with multiplying fractions, most of them found it to be

“the easiest thing we have done all year.” Until… I incorporated dividing fractions. For some

reason, the students started flipping the second fraction when multiplying fractions instead of just

when dividing fractions. I think I confused the students when I said, “so technically, you never

really divide… you always multiply.” To try and reverse the confusion, I used the sentence strips

as an extension activity to try and help the students see that KFC was only when you had a division

sign. When I teach this lesson again next year, I will move the sentence strip activity to the guided

practice section and allow the students to see that KCF was only an option when the division sign

is present. The students loved the Kahoot. It was not mandatory, it was just an intervention activity

for students who I felt needed a little more one-on-one instruction. When one of the students found

out that another student got to play an online game with me, all the students wanted to play. If I

would have known the students WANTED to take an online quiz (pretty much what it was), then

I would have created a Kahoot as the final assessment instead of a written test. Overall, my lesson

was successful. Every student passed the final assessment and are ready to move onto the next
