1. Topic-
 Multiplying Decimals and Whole Numbers
2. Content-
 Students will multiply whole numbers times decimal numbers to the tenths place.
3. Goals: Aims/Outcomes-
 1. Students will multiply whole numbers times decimal numbers to the tenths place. 2. Students will make a plan for solving problems involving purchases items from a store and finding the total cost.
4. Materials and Aids-
 Projector, .jpg of decimal model Decimal models, markers or colored pencils
5. Procedures/Methods-

A. Introduction-

 (5 min) 1. Relate the upcoming activity to purchases multiples of the same item from a store, such as Mac's Market. 2. Show students the red kangaroo example problem on page 164.

B. Development-

 (10 min) 1. Model multiplying decimals as repeated addition of decimals using the red kangaroo problem (Activity 1) 2. Repeat the demonstration for Activity 2 on page 165.

C. Practice-

 (10 - 15 min) 1. Have students make models to match problems 1 - 4 on page 165. 2. Monitor students as they color, ask questions about what they are doing. Have students say decimal numbers aloud. *Early finishers may try numbers 9 - 12, finding the total cost of each purchase with or without using models. 3. Students will compare models with a neighbor.

D. Independent Practice-

 (15 minutes) 1. Have students make models of problems 5 - 8. *Early finishers may try numbers 9 - 12, finding the total cost of each purchase with or without using models.

E. Accommodations (Differentiated Instruction)-

 1. Multiplication charts for students with accommodation. 2. One-on-one help with special education teacher fro students with accommodation. 3. Review of concepts of "tenths" and "hundredths" using the model.

F. Checking for understanding-

 (15 minutes) Assessment: Lesson quiz on page 165. Have students glue create models for these four problems.

G. Closure-

 Explain to students that the next activity will involve making purchases of multiple items, and we will learn to multiply without using models.
6. Evaluation-
 1. Groupings for the next day's follow-up activity will be based on the assessment.
