Description

Elementary students learn how to find and identify equivalent fractions using visual models showing length. This digital notebook uses embedded videos to make the math visual by showing students how to build and identify equivalent fractions using area model, length model, and number lines. Students also practice problem-solving and reasoning about equivalent fractions.

Why Teach Equivalent Fractions?

Understanding the concept of fractions is part of developing number sense in children. Fractions are related to decimal and percentage concepts. Fractions are used in algebra. Learning about fractions in the elementary grades also lays the foundation for proportional thinking later developed in middle school. Fractions are also critical to understand because they are used across various professions and advanced mathematics. Equivalent fractions are just one more facet of learning about fractions.

This resource has been completely updated in September 2020 doubling its size. It now includes embedded videos, mathematical reasoning tasks, and more!

This digital notebook supports some of the number sense standards for

  • Common Core State Standards - Mathematics, grade 3 (3.NF.A.3), grade 4 (4.NF.A.1)
  • TEKS grade 3 mathematics (MA.3.3.F, 3.3.G)
  • VSOL grade 3 mathematics (NS.3.3; 4.2.b)
  • Ontario Math Curriculum Grade 4, (Number Sense and Numeration)

How does it Work?

The digital notebook can be used both for in-class instruction, a hybrid model of in-class and distance learning, and complete distance learning. Use it to support your in-person or virtual lessons on equivalent fractions.

Teach a lesson, then use selected slides from the digital notebook as

  • guided practice
  • independent practice
  • homework

The 3 embedded tutorial videos support the students. Also, the Speaker Notes (Presenter Notes) section has more detailed directions for the students. A Tech Tips page for the student that explains how to use some of the features of the notebook.

Additionally, suggestions and recommendations for supporting mathematical reasoning in the digital notebook can be done by

  • providing feedback through the Google Slides commenting feature or by using the included scoring sheet.
  • using the suggested sharing opportunities of the student slides to promote mathematical discourse.
  • using the suggestions for modifications and adaptations of the digital notebook for English Language Learners and Students with Disabilities.
  • using virtual manipulatives (links provided to FREE virtual manipulatives)

How is the Digital Notebook Set Up?

The digital notebook has 39 slides divided into three parts and an additional student reflection section. Three sections include practice at DOK levels 1 - 3

Part 1: What are Equivalent Fractions?

In this section, the students build area models to find equivalent fractions to one-half. They learn and practice with

  • a Notice and Wonder activity
  • an embedded tutorial video explaining equivalent fractions
  • 4 practice slides building equivalent fractions to one-half.
  • a problem-solving activity involving a real-life context and using equivalencies
  • a problem-solving activity in which the student must decide between two arguments to reason mathematically about who is correct.

Part 2: Finding Equivalent Fractions Using Lengths

In this section, students will learn to build fraction models using fraction strips to find equivalent fractions. They learn and practice with

  • a Which One Doesn’t Belong activity
  • an embedded tutorial video explaining how length (fraction strips) can be used to find equivalent fractions
  • 5 practice slides using draggable fraction strips
  • a problem-solving activity involving a real-life context involving equivalent fractions
  • a problem-solving activity in which the student must decide between two arguments to reason mathematically about who is correct.

Part 3: Finding Equivalent Fractions on a Number Line

In this section, students will learn how number lines can be used to find equivalent fractions. They learn and practice with

  • a Which Would You Rather Have activity
  • an embedded tutorial video explaining how number lines can be used to find equivalent fractions
  • 5 practice slides using number lines
  • a problem-solving activity involving a real-life context involving equivalent fractions
  • a problem-solving activity in which the student must decide between two arguments to reason mathematically about who is correct.

Part 4: Assess Your Leaning

In this section, students self-reflect on what they have learned about equivalent fractions. Use this section as a guide to remediate, reinforce, clear up misunderstandings, or reinforce learning.

What’s Included?

  • PDF ReadMe File that includes
    • the link to the Google Slides® digital notebook
    • suggestions on how to use the digital notebook in different learning situations (in-person, hybrid or distance learning)
    • suggestions for adapting or modifying the digital notebook for use with English Language Learners and Students with Disabilities.
    • links to online FREE virtual manipulatives
    • instructions on how to assign the digital notebook in Google Classroom
    • tips for using the digital notebook in Google Classroom
    • answer key
    • scoring guides

  • PDF Copy of each slide for reference
  • PDF Printable Copy of the Speaker Notes for reference
  • PDF Instructions on how to move Google Slides® to other platforms (NearPod®, SeeSaw®, Microsoft Teams, etc.)

Please note: the embedded videos in the digital notebook are hosted on my YouTube Channel. You and your students should have access to YouTube to play the videos directly in the notebook. If you or your students do not have access to YouTube, I have provided links to a different hosting site on which the videos can be viewed.
