Ever wondered how to teach writing numerical expressions, evaluating expressions, and exploring number patterns in an engaging way to your 5th-grade students?

In this unit plan, students will first learn about writing numerical expressions using keywords for different operations and whole number exponents. Later on, they will build on this by practicing evaluating numerical expressions without exponents using the order of operations and symbols like parentheses, brackets, or braces.

Lastly, students will learn about identifying number patterns in sequences, tables, and graphing relationships on coordinate planes. Each lesson integrates artistic, interactive guided notes, checks for understanding, and culminates with a real-life example that explores how numerical expressions and patterns are used in a practical context.

- Standards: CCSS 5.OA.B.3, CCSS 5.OA.A.2, CCSS 5.OA.A.1
