Overview & Purpose
Assess your student’s or child’s ability to compare fractions with the use of fraction models with this quick two-question exit slip.
ON GRADE LEVEL: Grades 2-3
ENRICHMENT: Grades K-1
RETEACH: Grades 4-5
2.G.1.3 ~ Partition circles and rectangles into two, three, or four equal shares, describe the shares using the words halves, thirds, half of, a third of, etc., and describe the whole as two halves, three thirds, four fourths. Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape.
3.NF.1.3d ~ Compare two fractions with the same numerator or the same denominator by reasoning about their size. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
The student or child can compare fractions with the use of fraction models.
No text needed, however, this lesson goes along with the Go Math! Planning Guide ~ Getting Ready for Grade 3, Lesson 20.
Materials Needed ~ Everything is provided for you:
Exit Slip (make the copies you need)
Student Work Space Sheet
Student Evidence of Learning/Verification ~ Check your student’s or child’s understanding by the performance on the exit slip.
1. Teach or show your child or student how to compare fractions with the use of fraction models.
e.g., Color to show the fractions. Compare the two fractions with a <, =, or > to make a true statement.
2. Have your student or child complete the exit slip.
3. Assess how well he or she did using the answer key (provided).
Common Error: If there are any missed questions your student or child may be confusing comparison symbols.
Reteach: Show them again what each symbol means and have him or her try it again using the student work space to explain their thinking.
