This set of power point slides poses questions for students to answer regarding finding equal areas of a whole using Cuisenaire Rods. These slides align with the 3rd grade Common Core Standard CCSS.Math.Content.3.NF.A.1 Understand a fraction 1/b as the quantity formed by 1 part when a whole is partitioned into b equal parts; understand a fraction a/b as the quantity formed by a parts of size 1/b.
These slides are also available as an ActivInspire flipchart in which the rods are interactive and students can click, duplicate, and drag them on a computer or white board. This is a great way to incorporate Universal Design for Learning into your lesson and build multiple modalities for students who may need to utilize technology as a different access method!
