Fractions: Equivalent Fractions Using "Bottoms Up!"
We are VERY excited to welcome you to the Fractions unit of our popular math handouts series! This freebie (which provides step-by-step instructions for using the "Bottom's Up!" strategy to identify equivalent fractions) will give you a good idea of the kind of thorough, engaging practice you can look forward to when you shop 88Brains.
Try it, love it, and please don't hesitate to come back for more. We've got PLENTY
. In fact, this handout is just one of many
handouts in our wonderful Fractions Bundle
. We've also broken down the bundle into a series of Fractions mini-bundles (the 1st installment of which is RIGHT HERE
) for your teaching convenience.
Ok, let's get down to brass tacks and take a look at how our math handouts are set up.
Here's what we provide:
* Mini-Lesson: Learn the Skill
-Skill is laid out in an easily digestible format with vocabulary, definitions, diagrams and an example problem. Students have this tool at their fingertips while completing the assignment.
* Use What You Know: Apply the Skill
-Offers immediate reinforcement of the skill. Questions approach the skill from more than one angle to ensure full understanding.
* Show What You Know: Word Problems
-This section helps students practice determining what a question is asking them, as well as how to recognize and use key words.
* Write What You Know: Writing in Math
-This section helps students practice expressing their reasoning strategies in complete sentences.
* Prove What You Know: Test Prep
-Students can never be TOO ready for EOGs, EOCs, and other standardized tests, so here they practice good test-taking strategies with multiple choice questions.
* Spiral Review
-Kids' brains are like sponges, but knowledge can leak back out if they don't re-soak, so to speak. This review dusts the cobwebs off of earlier units.
* Answer Key
-Time is money (or rest, or quality time with your family, or really whatever you want to spend it doing), so we always include answer keys for the teacher-on-the-go!
* Print in color for best results
* Consider printing front and back for green points
* Continue shopping at the 88Brains store ;)
* Keep being awesome!
We've also got great file folder games to practice fractions skills right here:
* Fraction Practice with Sea Turtles: Equal Parts
* The "Bear" Facts About Fractions: Identifying Fractions
