and Subtraction of Unlike Fractions - Students will be able to add
and subtract fractions with unlike denominators by using their learned
skills to find the greatest common factor and applying it to create fractions
with like denominators.
Chefs - Students become Cuisenaire Chefs as they mix and toss Cuisenaire
rods to recreate recipes. This hands-on activity gives students a chance
to identify the value of fractions at an introductory level.
Up in Class, Fractal Style - Students create three-dimensional models
demonstrating exponents, multiplying/dividing of fractions, and the use
of repeating patterns in tessellations, mirror images, and tiling.
Parts - Be able to: understand number concepts; identify and write
fractions to name equal parts of regions; engage in partner discussion
and whole class sharing.
Fractions- Students will be able to recognize fractions of equal value
and that name the same amount.
Fractions- By performing this activity, students will become familiar
with fractions, and have a meaningful experience to relate them to. It
is hoped that students will become more comfortable with using fractions
and have a better understanding of them.
Fractions - Do you have only a fraction of time to teach fractions?
Well, here is the lesson for you! Fantastic Fractions teaches students
the difference between 1/2, 1/3, and 1/4.
Fractions - Students use various geometric shapes to represent fractional
Action - Students create fractions using strips of paper and then
compare the fractions.
and Decimal Garden - Students write fractions and decimals using unifix
cube models and grid paper. They draw a garden using grid paper and label
each section with the correct fraction and decimal to the tenths.
Card Shark - The student will understand the relative size of fractions
using symbolic and concrete representations.
Feast! - This lesson introduces the concept of fractions to kindergarten
with Food- The students will be able to identify concepts of fractions
by using M & M's and pizza shapes to create their own fraction.
Sandwiches- Students will be able to find the common unit of measure,
or the common denominator, and will show this be correctly adding fractions
with different denominators.
Fractions - Will be showing how to read and write fractions on a beginning
Num/ Impr Frac/+or- unlike - The student will be able to change mixed
numbers into improper fraction, complete addition or subtraction with
those improper fractions, and convert the answer back into a mixed number.
fractions & ratios with M&Ms- I taught this lesson shortly after Halloween,
so I began by asking students what they usually do with their Hallowe'en
candy when they get home. I fielded responses, then told them that I used
to sort my candy into piles (classifying it by types or colors or whatever).
