Goals: | Goal 1: The learner will understand and compute with rational numbers. |
Objectives: | 1.04 Develop fluency in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division of non-negative rational numbers. a.Analyze computational strategies. b.Describe the effect of operations on size. c.Estimate the results of computations. d.Judge the reasonableness of solutions. |
Materials: | construction paper, markers, ruler, manipulatives, paper, and pencil Smart board |
Introduction: | Students will complete bell ringer problem |
Development: | Teacher will demonstrate how to create fraction bars. Teacher will present and demonstrate lesson: definition of proper and improper fractions and mixed numbers. Teacher will demonstrate how to simply fractions by writing in lowest term. Students will simply fractions by writing in lowest terms. |
Practice: | Students will create fraction bars as demonstrated by the teacher. Students will use created fraction bars (manipulatives) to show fractions as a part of a whole. Students will demonstrate understanding by defining a proper and improper fractions. Students will simply fractions by writing in lowest terms. Teacher will have students reflect by say and asked the following: Look over the solution. Does it seem probable? Did you answer the question? Are you sure? Did you answer using the language in the question? |
Accommodations: | Student centered instruction/small group/pairing struggling students with a partner/extended time. Enrichment: Have students conduct Internet or library research and/or write a paragraph based on any type of mathematics related personal experience. Follow-up lesson…. |
Checking For Understanding: | Question students on what a solution could be for dividing up a pizza to give to 8 people or how could divide up 8 pices of candy between 4 people. Ask students how many 8th make up a half. Ask similair questions. |
Closure: | Give students round (rectangular) pieces of paper and have them fold it to divide it into 8 (or ???) equal parts. |
