PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

For the full Fraction Unit, try:

Fraction Bundle

This product features 12 fraction word problems on a 2x3 grid, as well as a recording sheet for students to use to work out the problems and record their answers. The problems are modeled after test prep questions. All fraction topics are covered, including equivalent fractions, number lines, and improper fractions (6/1, 4/1, etc.)

In my own classroom, I have printed 2 copies of the document out, and numbered them 1-12 on the back.

In class, pass out the cards to students. They walk around and find the other student who has the same card number as them. The pair sits down together and solves the problem on their recording sheet. Repeat and share when finished.

I have found that it turns somewhat monotonous word problem practice into an engaging, fun activity. These are great for test-prep review!

The 3rd Grade Common Core objectives covered are:

CCSS.Math.Content.3.NF.A.1 Understand a fraction 1/b as the quantity formed by 1 part when a whole is partitioned into b equal parts; understand a fraction a/b as the quantity formed by a parts of size 1/b.
CCSS.Math.Content.3.NF.A.2 Understand a fraction as a number on the number line; represent fractions on a number line diagram.
CCSS.Math.Content.3.NF.A.3 Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases, and compare fractions by reasoning about their size.
CCSS.Math.Content.3.NF.A.3b Recognize and generate simple equivalent fractions, e.g., 1/2 = 2/4, 4/6 = 2/3. Explain why the fractions are equivalent, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
CCSS.Math.Content.3.NF.A.3c 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.
