This product contains a PowerPoint and corresponding note taker and teaches students how to do the following:
- Add and subtract fractions with like denominators
- Add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators
- Convert mixed numbers to improper fractions
- Convert improper fractions to mixed numbers
- Decompose fractions
- Decompose mixed numbers
The PowerPoint not only provides student friendly notes but also practice for each concept.
The corresponding note taker goes along with the PowerPoint for an easy way for students to ensure they get all necessary notes down. Students can easily put these notes into an interactive notebook or spiral by cutting off the borders.
This is a great way to introduce the concepts and ensure you are teaching a lesson that is aligned to common core!
Standards covered in this product include the following:
Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.
Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation. Justify decompositions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model. Examples: 3/8 = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 ; 3/8 = 1/8 + 2/8 ; 2 1/8 = 1 + 1 + 1/8 = 8/8 + 8/8 + 1/8.
Add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators, e.g., by replacing each mixed number with an equivalent fraction, and/or by using properties of operations and the relationship between addition and subtraction.
I hope you and your students find this resource beneficial and engaging! Please remember to leave feedback!
