Few math topics cause more frustration for students and teachers than fraction operations. Part of the problem is that fractions don’t look or act like most numbers we deal with on a daily basis.

With a hands-on approach to fractions, students develop conceptual understanding as they actively engage in their learning.

Included in this Quick Start Guide are lesson plans and reproducibles that will help you bring hands-on fraction learning to your class right away!

Solve real world problems involving multiplication of fractions and mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.
Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction by a whole number.
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.
Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and separating parts referring to the same whole.
Express whole numbers as fractions, and recognize fractions that are equivalent to whole numbers. Examples: Express 3 in the form 3 = 3/1; recognize that 6/1 = 6; locate 4/4 and 1 at the same point of a number line diagram.
