More on Double Numberlines and Fractions

Posted on January 15, 2013. Filed under: Common Core, Guided math, Math Centers | Tags: , , , , , , , |


Here are some examples of modeling subtraction of fractions with double numberlines.  Remember that with any model, teach it in the whole group, practice it in small guided math groups and math workstations.

Fraction of the Day: Guided Math and Math Center Activities

Posted on December 6, 2012. Filed under: Assessment, Common Core, Guided math | Tags: , , , , , , , , |


Fraction of the day is a great routine. Jennifer Findley did a great graphic organizer!  I have extended the concepts based on the math CCSS. To do this routine, you take a fraction like 3/4 and you have the students do some or all of the following:

1. Decide if it is in simplest form

2. Add 1/4; Draw a model

3. Subtract 1/4; Draw a model

4.  Add 1/2 (You want students to realize that this is easy…just decompose 1/2 into fourths); Draw a model

5.  Subtract 1/2 (see above); Draw a model

6. Multiply it by 3/ Write a story to go with your equation

7. Compose/Decompose it …like  3/4 = 1/4 +1/4 + 1/4 or 3/4 = 1/2 +1/4

8. Divide 3 by it / Write a story to go with your equation

9. Draw it on a Numberline….Is it closer to 0, 1/2 or 1

10. Draw it as a set and/or as the area model
