Build this simple routine into your math class and watch your students' understanding of fraction concepts grow! GREAT FOR DISTANCE LEARNING!

This Growing Bundle is complete! It now includes practice pages for 54 fractions that are less than one with two pages of suggestions for using, including a group protocol.

Students will represent each fraction with a visual model, on a number line, as a division problem and decompose it. These are essential skills that lead to greater understanding of fraction concepts.

The teaching suggestions include a link to a FREE 10 minute video as well as a group protocol for using this resource. It's very versatile and can be used whole group, small group or individually. For a blog post about how I use this resource with my fifth-graders, check out Ms. Cotton's Corner.com, including on update on how I am using this for distance learning right now!

Interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by the denominator (𝘒/𝘣 = 𝘒 ÷ 𝘣). Solve word problems involving division of whole numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. For example, interpret 3/4 as the result of dividing 3 by 4, noting that 3/4 multiplied by 4 equals 3, and that when 3 wholes are shared equally among 4 people each person has a share of size 3/4. If 9 people want to share a 50-pound sack of rice equally by weight, how many pounds of rice should each person get? Between what two whole numbers does your answer lie?
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 a fraction 𝘒/𝘣 with 𝘒 > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/𝘣.
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.
