__INTRODUCTION__

__ __

To provide effective mathematics instruction, teachers must be able to choose effective, age-appropriate mathematical tools to meet the learning needs of a diverse student population. With these tools in mind, effective teachers must be able to use research-based instruction to present lessons that align with state and national standards.

In this task, you will identify hands-on and virtual tools appropriate for an elementary (K–6) classroom and then create a lesson plan including one of those tools, using the attached “WGU Direct Instruction Lesson Plan Template.” You may use the attached “WGU Direct Instruction Lesson Plan Guide” to inform your lesson plan development. Additionally, you will provide several brief explanations based on the components of your lesson plan.

__REQUIREMENTS__

**Part One: Tools**

Explore several hands-on and virtual tools you could use in an elementary mathematics lesson and select four of each to evaluate in the following prompts.

- Evaluate
**four**hands-on tools that elementary-age students can use to explore mathematical concepts, including the following for*each*tool:

**one**use of the tool to explore mathematical concepts**one**specific benefit of using the tool to explore mathematical concepts**one**specific challenge of using the tool to explore mathematical concepts

*Note: Classroom resources (e.g., flash cards, whiteboards) are not acceptable hands-on mathematical tools.*

*Note: General classroom feasibility characteristics (e.g., storage, cost, availability) are not acceptable benefits or challenges of using the tool.*

- Evaluate
**four**virtual tools that elementary-age students can use to explore mathematical concepts, including the following for*each*tool:

**one**use of the tool to explore mathematical concepts**one**specific benefit of using the tool to explore mathematical concepts**one**specific challenge of using the tool to explore mathematical concepts- a web link to the identified tool

*Note: Entire websites or software packages (e.g., IXL.com, Microsoft Excel), classroom technology hardware (e.g., interactive whiteboards, student response systems), and general virtual classroom resources (e.g., virtual flash cards, virtual quizzes) are not appropriate virtual tools for this task.*

*Note: General classroom feasibility characteristics (e.g., storage, cost, availability) are not acceptable benefits or challenges of using the tool.*

**Part Two: Lesson Plan**

- Using the “WGU Direct Instruction Lesson Plan Template,” create an original elementary-level (K–6) mathematics lesson plan that incorporates a tool from
*either*part A or part B and that includes the following:

**one**state or national mathematics standard, including the source of the standard, the alphanumeric indicator code, and the written standard**one**measurable learning objective that aligns to the standard

**Part Three: Reflection**

- Explain how the tool from part C will enhance student learning during the lesson.

- Explain how your lesson plan incorporates
*each*of the following components: - conceptual understanding
- problem solving
- procedural fluency

- Explain how
**one**instructional strategy in your lesson plan (e.g., collaborative learning, modeling, discovery learning) supports learning outcomes.
