This end-of-the-school-year lesson will get the students focused on all the things they learned in math class! It reviews different skills with fractions and decimals in word problems using the "Read, Draw, and Write" strategy.
Getting ready to subtract fractions? This lesson reviews how to subtract like denominators and teaches students how to subtract unlike denominators. The focus is on understanding the process and reasoning behind each step.
Make It Work! Adding Fractions with Unlike Denominators
Adding fractions with unlike denominators just doesn't work like it does when the denominators are the same. Let's make it work! Students will add fractions with unlike denominators with sums between one and two.
Some understandings are revealed through repeated, clear and simple steps. Use this lesson plan to teach your students to illustrate area model for products when multiplying fractions. It’s a four-step adventure!
Fractions are everywhere! In this hands-on lesson, your class will work together in groups to find real-world examples of fractions. As they discover more complicated fractions, students will create their own word problems with them.
In this hands-on lesson, your students will get to sharpen their measuring skills as they measure lengths of items in your classroom to the nearest quarter inch. They'll get to then use their data to create line plots.
Help kids master fractions with the fun, fast-paced, math comparison game Fraction Wars. After a review, students are split into pairs to practice quickly comparing fractions with different numerators and denominators.
Subtracting Mixed Numbers Using the Decomposition Strategy
Teach your students to subtract mixed numbers with like denominators using the strategy of decomposition. This strategy helps students to manipulate and break down numbers to help them solve tricky subtraction problems.
