## BRICK MATH lesson plans

**The Brick Math program includes complete teacher lesson plans for each subject in the curriculum. Each Lesson Plan includes suggested bricks, student outcomes, a foundational statement with examples, and instructions for student work.**

****Each chapter follows the same teaching strategy:

Start by taking students through the

**Part 1: Show Them How**section of each chapter. Build the models, show them to the students, and ask students questions as directed.

Have students build the same models themselves so they are manipulating the bricks as you are guiding them. If possible, use a document camera to display your models as you build them.

If you are also using the companion Student Editions, have students draw their models and answer the questions in those books as you work through the Teacher Edition.

Once students have mastered the modeling processes from Part 1, move to the

**Part 2: Show What You Know**sections of the chapter. Ask students to complete each of the problems, first by modeling with bricks and then drawing their models in the companion Student Edition.
