### Target 1​

###### Lesson Type:

Review

Number Operation

:

Fractional Numbers

Identity, compare, and manipulate different types of fractions.

###### 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.

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.

###### 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. ## Absent Students:

### Target 2

:

###### 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.

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.    ### Home Exploration
