Comparing Fractions: Like Numerators or Denominators - Math Coach's Corner

Isn’t that a great question? I just started reading the book Creating Cultures of Thinking, and author Ron Ritchhart tackles that issue head on (pg 47). Understanding requires knowledge, but goes beyond it. Understanding depends on richly integrated and connected knowledge. This means that understanding goes beyond merely possessing a set of skills or a collection of facts in isolation; rather, understanding requires that our knowledge be woven together in a way that connects one idea to another. Sadly, in mathematics, we’ve been teaching fractions without understanding for years. 10 Useful Math Practice Apps for Elementary Students.

A fraction is in its simplest form (this is also called being expressed in lowest terms) if the Greatest Common Factor (GCF), also called the Greatest Common Divisor (GCD), of the numerator and denominator is 1.

Adding and subtracting fractions

Identify that the denominator in a fraction tells us how many equal sized parts are in a whole, and the numerator tells us how many of the pieces we are interested in Students can coordinate the numerator and the denominator in a fraction to create and explain meaning for fractions Background Before this activity is commenced, students should have learnt that fractions can be smaller than one, can equal one, and be greater than one, and can relate drawings to numeric fractions. It is also useful if they can convert improper fractions to mixed numbers, though as the students are at stage 5 this is likely to be using additive methods rather than multiplicative ones. Comments on the Exercises Exercise 1 Asks students to solve addition problems with fraction with the support of diagrams. Varnelle's Primary Math. These lessons are designed to guide young children through an introduction to fractions.

Varnelle's Primary Math

Children learn to recognize parts of a whole and divide a whole into equal parts. Students use fractions to make connections to fruit or common objects. Students learn to represent simple fractions such as Note: According to tne National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM), at this level it is more important for students to recognize when things are divided into equal parts than to focus on fraction notation. Second graders should be able to identify three parts out of four equal parts, or three-fourths of a folded paper that has been shaded, and should understand that fourths means four equal parts.

Activities are aligned to the NCTM Standards and the Philadelphia Curriculum Framework. Using LEGO to Build Math Concepts. I was not one of those LEGO® kids growing up.

Using LEGO to Build Math Concepts

Sure, my brothers had LEGO bricks, and every so often I’d kidnap some tiny LEGO men for a make-believe game. But I didn’t truly appreciate the engineering capacity of those studded plastic bricks. They were just so rigidly rectangular! As an adult, I’ve come to appreciate LEGO, both for its rectilinear aesthetic, and even more so, for its mathematical might. In the classroom, the tiny bricks are now my favorite possibility-packed math manipulative!

LEGO – Not Just for Playtime Chances are that if you are a parent or teacher, you already know, at least in theory, that these sturdy plastic blocks have huge intrinsic educational value. Let’s face it though – many elementary school teachers are women who, like me, did not grow up as LEGO experts. You'll undoubtedly find mathematical inspiration in a pile of LEGO bricks.
