Product Description
Simplest Form and Equivalent Fractions, Comparing & Ordering Fractions: visual, interactive "doodle notes" -

When students color or doodle in math class, it activates both hemispheres of the brain at the same time. There are proven benefits of this cross-lateral brain activity:
- new learning
- relaxation (less math anxiety)
- visual connections
- better memory & retention of the content!

Students fill in the sheets, answer the questions, and color, doodle or embellish. Then, they can use it as a study guide later on.

Content includes:
- What is a fraction?
- Writing a fraction in simplest form using GCF
- Equivalent Fractions
- Models for Equivalent Fractions
- Finding a Common Denominator
- LCD (Lowest Common Denominator) for comparing & ordering
- Models for comparing fractions
- Practice & Examples

Visual note taking strategies like sketch notes or doodle notes are based on dual coding theory.  When we can blend the text input with graphic/visual input, the student brain processes the information differently and can more easily convert the new learning into long-term memory.

This strategy also integrates the left and right hemispheres of the brain to increase focus, learning, and retention!
