Number Operation

:

Fractional Numbers

Understand that a fraction is a quantity formed when a whole is partitioned into equal parts.

Supporting targets:
1:

Understand and explain what a fraction is.

2:

Identify the number of equal parts as the denominator of a fraction.

Grade:

3rd

Vocabulary:

Fraction, Whole, Parts, Equal, Denominator

Activities:

  • Students were given the chance to explore fraction tiles. They used the different fraction tiles to create a whole.
  • Students learned that the denominator in a fraction identifies the number of equal parts needed to make a whole.

Grade:

4th

Vocabulary:

Variable, Missing Numbers, Unknown

Activities:

  • Students were given a set of related equations with all 4 operations. In each equation, there was one or two missing numbers. The boxes of the missing numbers were colored to represent each of the unknown numbers.
  • Student learned they must solve the parts in parentheses before solving the rest of the equation. They started with the only equation with one unknown, and used that information to help them solve the next equation until they reached the answer to the last equation at the top.

Algebra
Sequence
Use arithmetic to define a sequence and calculate the next unit in a series.

:

Supporting targets:
1:

Study a given arithmetic sequence to determine what rule explains the sequence (i.e., 2-4-6-8-10…each number is the sequence gets bigger by 2).

2:

Write an arithmetic rule to explain a given sequence.

3:

Understand that a pattern can be described by stating the rule that it is following.

4:

5:

Grade:

3rd

Vocabulary:

Pattern, Sequence

Activities:

  • Students looked at a sequence of numbers and determined the pattern. After identifying the rule, students determined the next few numbers in the sequence.
  • Students created their own arithmetic sequence for their classmate to figure out the rule and next numbers in the sequence.
