Life Science Vocabulary

Life science lessons often include complex, unfamiliar vocabulary. The study of the human body, for example, can involve multiple systems, each with their own set of structures and terminology. Help your child keep these terms straight by spending additional time learning and reviewing them beyond regular science instruction.

Equivalent Fractions with Area Models, Number Lines, and Computation

Equivalent Fractions with Area Models, Number Lines, and Computation

Modeling fractions is an essential skill, even if your child would often prefer to just do the computation! Teach your child to use number lines and bar models as visuals so that they develop a deep understanding of the core concepts they are learning. After they have been exposed to models and visuals, give your child the opportunity to construct their own number lines. Once they understand what equivalent fractions look like, they will be ready to tackle complex problems using other methods.
