Target 1​

Lesson Type:

Review

Number Operation

:

Fractional Numbers

Identity, compare, and manipulate different types of fractions.

Supporting targets:
1:

Understand that fractions represent quantities that have a portion that is less than a whole.

2:

Convert improper fractions to mixed numbers (and vice versa), understanding that both have “wholes” as a part of their quantity.

3:

Understand that fractions with different numerators and denominators can represent the same size.

4:

Simplify a fraction to its lowest terms.

5:

Use understandings of factors to simplify fractions.

Grade:

4th

Vocabulary:

Fractions, Numerator, Denominator, Simplify, Reduce, Greatest Common Factor (GCF), Improper Fraction, Mixed Number

Activities:

  • Listed the factor pairings of a fraction's numeraor and denominator to determine the Greatest Common Factor (GCF).
  • Used the GCF to reduce a fraction to its simplest form.
  • Explored how a fraction can also be reduced by dividing its numerator and denominator by a common factor until it is in its simplest form.
  • Used their understand of manipulating fractions to add fractions with unlike denominators.

Home Exploration

Challenge Problem:

Choose 2 numbers between 20 and 100. Use the numbers to make a proper fraction and reduce it to its simplest form. Note that you can use the Greatest Common Factor or reduce the original fraction multiple times until you no longer can.

Challenge Data:

Guiding Questions:
  • What is a Greatest Common Factor (GCF)? How do we find it?
  • Lets practice: What is the GCF for 6 and 24. List the factor pairs of each number and circle the GCF.
  • When creating fractions to recuce, build a fraction together by each choosing a number.

Target 2

Lesson Type:
Continuation
Geometry
Coordinates
Use coordinates to find a location on a grid.

:

Supporting targets:
1:

Locate points in all four quadrants of the coordinate plane.

2:

Recognize which quadrant a point is in, based on the properties of its coordinate pairs.

3:

Understand that the first number in a coordinate pair indicates placement on the x-axis and the second indicates placement on the y-axis.

4:

Graph points in the first and second quadrant of the coordinate plane.

5:

Grade:

5th

Vocabulary:

Coordinates, Point, X- and Y-Axis, Quadrant I-IV, Ordered Pair

Activities:

  • Continued plotting points onto our coordinate plane based on the folds and creases made from unfolding an origami crane.
  • Incorporated fractions into the ordered pairs as not all lines of intersection matched the intersections of the x-and y-axes.
  • Determined the pattern rules for ordered pairs as they lay in each quadrant. For example, if a point is plotted in Quadrant III, both the x and y coordinates will be negative.
