Encourage students to explain the relationship between decimals and fractions to help them with future computations. Use this lesson on its own or as support to the lesson Area with Decimals and Fractions.
Refresh students on the relationship between decimals and fractions when they multiply to find the area! They will find the area of a location in a picture by converting mixed numbers to a decimals and then using the area equation.
Help students color-code their way to multiplying fractions! Students will learn how to multiply fractions using area models. Use this lesson on its own or use it as support to the lesson Area Models and Multiplying Fractions.
In order to build a strong foundation with fractions, students should be able to explain the concept and their thinking. Use this as a stand alone lesson or as a pre-lesson for *Let's Play Equivalent Fractions!*
Make decimal comparisons! Your students will focus on comparing decimals and using necessary language to say their comparisons. Use this lesson by itself or use it as support for the Decimals, Decimals, Decimals lesson.
Get your students to think deeply about fractions as they discuss which pictures show equivalence. Use this as a stand alone lesson or a pre-lesson for the *Equivalent Fractions: Are They Equal?* lesson.
Are these fractions really equal? Use this lesson to introduce the concept of equivalent fractions with your students. Teach this on its own or use it as support for the lesson Equivalent Fractions Using Area Models.
Fractions, decimals, and percents lesson plans examine three basic math concepts that are closely related. Learn how to convert from one to the other, how to perform mathematical equations, and more. These lesson plans will give kids a hands on way to learn about fractions, decimals, and percents.
