Topics covered in this Unit Plan includes mathematical properties, divisibility rules, prime factorization, distributive property, and least common multiple.

**PEDAGOGY METHODS**

- The main instructional strategy of this Unit Plan is to use the concept of a "Flipped Classroom," where the students take notes on each topic at home as homework rather than in the classroom and the homework is done in class. The notes are taken a day in advance before students work on the assignments in class. The goal is to provide students will more instructional support in solving through the math problems and promote more academic dialogue in class through student collaboration.
- (Recommendation) Traditional instruction is done during the "Lesson 6: Distributive Property" lesson. The reason is for students to clearly understand the different strategies they need to use to distributive expressions and factor expressions to equivalent expressions while in class rather than outside of the classroom.

**STUDENT OBJECTIVES**

- The unit objective is for students to compute fluently with multi-digit numbers and find common factors and multiples. The students will apply and extend previous understandings of arithmetic to algebraic expressions.
- Students will be able to identify and evaluate equivalent expressions using
*mathematical properties, divisibility rules, prime factorization, greatest common factor, distributive property, and least common multiple.*
