Description

This lesson will help students master finding fractions of whole numbers, and determining what the whole is, when given a fractional piece of it. This lesson is designed to be fun and different from the normal text book driven lesson.

This lesson may be used on its own, or as a companion piece to your math class. The fraction word problems in this lesson are real world based, so that students can relate to them.

After completing this lesson your students will be better prepared to find fractions of whole numbers as well as reversing the formula to find their whole number.

Explain why a fraction 𝘢/𝘣 is equivalent to a fraction (𝘯 × 𝘢)/(𝘯 × 𝘣) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
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.
Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction by a whole number.
