Whole Brain Teaching

This document highlights 30 topics specific to 3rd grade Math as defined by the Common Core State Standards. Based on an idea conceived by Chris Biffle, founder of Whole Brain Teaching, these pictures can be used to actively teach students the core concepts of a 3rd grade math program. Each Power Pix references the standards in which the word is addressed: Operations & Algebraic Thinking (OA), Number & Operations in Base 10 (NBT), Number & Operations – Fractions (NF), Measurement & Data (MD) and Geometry (G) .

Using Power Pix and Whole Brain Teaching methods, learning becomes multi-modal, thereby solidifying the concepts in students’ brains. When used as a teaching tool, the Power Pix help the teacher with gestures and definitions to attach to each concept. Whether printed out or projected on a screen, these Power Pix give the students a visual reference for all major Math concepts. When posted in the room, the Power Pix become an interactive resource for students to use as a review tool. Imagine filling every spare moment of classroom time by having students review with each other content specific topics. Now that’s maximizing instruction!

The following slide shows how to use each pix.

Operations & Algebraic Thinking (OA)

Number & Operations in Base Ten (NBT)

Number & Operations – Fractions (NF)

Measurement & Data (MD)

Geometry (G)

Question and Answer for the topic

Grade Level

Concept Word – colors represent

syllables to help students with

pronunciation

Picture(s) representing the key word of the standard

Gesture

The red background on these slides identifies them as part of math concepts.

Language Arts concepts have a blue background.

Each WBT lesson follows a format.

1. Question – tell students the question and they repeat

2. Answer – give the answer with a gesture.

3. Expand – use examples to scaffold instruction about concept

4. Evaluate – quick assessment to guide instruction

5. Critical Thinking – students begin to internalize the concept

Question: What is multiplication?

Answer: Multiplication is putting together equal groups.

Gesture: Cross arms like an X. (multiplication) Clasp hands together. (putting together) Put one arm horizontal over the other like an equal sign. (equal groups)

Teaching Suggestions:

Connect repeated addition to the concept of multiplication.

Students write multiplication problems for pictures projected on the board. Begin to

introduce “factor” and “product”. Share problems using Oral Writing.

Students draw a picture of equal groups and then write an equation for it.

Given a multiplication problem, students create a story problem to match.

Students draw arrays for given multiplication problems.

Sample Power Pix Lesson (con’t.)

Q/T: Multiplication is putting together equal groups.

Factors are the answers to multiplication problems.

Products are the answers to multiplication problems.

The times sign means “groups of”.

4 + 6 = 10 is an example of a multiplication problem.

7 x 2 means 7 groups of 2.

Critical Thinking:

Encourage students to speak complete sentences explaining multiplication.

(3 x 5 = 15 because ______.)

Factors are like factories because ________________.

Multiplication is more efficient than addition because ______________.

Multiplication is repeated addition. For example, ____________.

Factors and products are like main ideas and details because _________.
