### Target 1​

###### Lesson Type:

New

Number Operation

:

Fractional Numbers

Identity, compare, and manipulate different types of fractions.

###### 1:

Simplify a fraction to its lowest terms.

###### 2:

Use understandings of factors to simplify fractions.

4th

###### Vocabulary:

Fraction, Simplest Form, Common Factor, Lowest Terms, Simplify, Factors

Activities:

1. Students discussed different strategies to simplify fractions. They shared their understanding of how factors help to simplify fractions.

2. Students were given a few numbers to practive listing factors of that number. Then, we compared two numbers and identified factors of both. They then would state what would be the simplest way to bring down a fraction.

3. Stutdents were given a variety of fractions and they needed to use their knowledge to bring each fraction down to lowest terms. Students used whiteboards to show their thinking.

4. After doing a few problems, students were given a coloring key with a variety of fractions. They needed to bring the fraction down to lowest terms. Then, color a picture based on the key.    ### Home Exploration

###### Vocabulary:

Prime, Composite, Odd, Even

Activities:

1. Reviewed what the math vocabulary for prime and composite means. Students were then given a sheet wtih number one through 100. They needed to determine whether the number was prime or composite. Then, color it by whether it is prime or composite and odd or even.    ### Home Exploration
