Direct Instruction Lesson Plan Template
General Information
Lesson Title: Generate two number patterns from given rules, plot the points and analyze the patterns
Subject(s): Patterns and Functions
Grade/Level/Setting: 5
th
Grade
Prerequisite Skills/Prior Knowledge:
Coordinates, coordinate plane, axis, x-coordinates, y-coordinates, origin, coordinate pairs, creating rules from
coordinate pairs
Standards and Objectives
State/National Academic Standard(s):
5.OA.3
Generate two numerical patterns using two given rules. Identify apparent relationships between
corresponding terms. Form ordered pairs consisting of corresponding terms from the two patterns, and
graph the ordered pairs on a coordinate plane.
Learning Objective(s):
Given rules, students will be able to generate coordinate pairs based on given rules, construct lines, and
analyze relationships between the two given rules with 80% accuracy on the exit ticket.

Language Demands
Specific ways that
academic language
(vocabulary, functions, discourse, syntax) is used by students to participate
in learning tasks through reading, writing, listening, and/or speaking to demonstrate their understanding.
Language Function(s):
Analyze: Students will analyze the number patterns of plotted points from given addition rules to
predict other points on the same lines.
Vocabulary:
Axis/axes, x-coordinate, y-coordinate, origin, coordinate pair, ordered pair, coordinate plane, parallel,
intersecting
Discourse and/or Syntax:
Discourse: Analyzing relationship between coordinate pairs generated from two given rules. Students
will predict what a third line will look like when given a similar rule.
Planned Language Supports:
Students will participate in cooperative learning to evaluate number patterns of given rules,
discuss vocabulary, and predict the behavior of a third line from a similar rule. After discussions,
clear definitions will be given of new and review vocabulary and place on the math word wall.
The use of a coordinate plane template and completion of a table and plotted points on a
coordinate plane from a given rule will be modeled on the SMARTboard.
Instructional Strategies and Learning Tasks

Anticipatory Set:
Activity Description/Teacher
Student Actions
Whole-group discussion connecting students’
prior knowledge of coordinate planes,
x- and y-
coordinates, coordinate pairs, and origin. The
teacher will project a sample coordinate plane
to guide discussion around modeling how to plot
