Description

Monster Fractions includes 40+ pages of four fraction math centers aligned to the Common Core Standards for 4th and 5th grade. The centers can also be used for review for 6th grade or for challenging advanced learners in 3rd grade. The centers included are:

1. "Finding Freaky Equivalent Fractions"-Students use the task cards to find the number they must multiply the numerator and denominator by to complete the equivalent fraction. Student directions and an answer key to check answers are included.

2. "Monster Half Smack"-Students play a game where they place cards with fractions greater than or less than 1/2 on a board. When a fraction card is flipped that is equal to 1/2, the first player to smack the card keeps it. Student directions and a visual fraction bar model are included for students to check their answers.

3. "Monster Matchmaker"-Students play the memory game or go fish with the fraction cards that have a numerical fraction listed with a visual model. Students must match fractions that are equivalent. Student directions and a visual fraction bar model are included for students to check their answers.

4. "Monster Word Problems"-Students use the task cards to solve word problems with fractions. Cards have word problems that involve adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators, multiplying a fraction by a whole number, and adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators. Each task card has a separate answer key with the equation and method of solving the problem modeled. Directions and student sheet to record answers and work are also provided.

Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. Use benchmark fractions and number sense of fractions to estimate mentally and assess the reasonableness of answers. For example, recognize an incorrect result 2/5 + 1/2 = 3/7, by observing that 3/7 < 1/2.
Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, 𝘒/𝘣 + 𝘀/π˜₯ = (𝘒π˜₯ + 𝘣𝘀)/𝘣π˜₯.)
Solve word problems involving multiplication of a fraction by a whole number, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. For example, if each person at a party will eat 3/8 of a pound of roast beef, and there will be 5 people at the party, how many pounds of roast beef will be needed? Between what two whole numbers does your answer lie?
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.
Explain why a fraction 𝘒/𝘣 is equivalent to a fraction (𝘯 Γ— 𝘒)/(𝘯 Γ— 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.
