This booklet uses the concept of equivalent fractions to develop a common denominator that allows the addition and subtraction of unlike denominators, first with manipulatives and then with calculation.
Subjects covered: Assessment and Assessment Guide, Addition of Unlike Fractions: Manipulative and Recording, Subtraction of Unlike Fractions: Manipulative and Recording, Common Denominators with Graph Paper, Least Common Multiples, Fraction Card Game, and Working with Mixed Numbers
A constructivist approach in which students learn through hands-on exploration, discovery, inventions, and the creation of models.
The Parent/Teacher Guide has instructions on how to teach the lessons, sample dialogues, games, and the Answer Key. The Student Workbook has worksheets and practice pages. We highly recommended that you order both for a complete package.
