This Smart Notebook is divided into 5 lessons that work with fractions and a few other small topics. Lesson 1 is an introduction to fractions. Students will learn what a numerator and denominator are, how to write whole numbers as fractions, and practice their beginning concept of fractions in a few word problems. Lesson 2 has two short experiments: possibilities with a dice and blocks in a bag. Lesson 3, students will write decimals, turn decimals into fractions, answer word problems, and participate in a hands on activity with all the possible combinations of pants and socks from their two handouts. Lesson 4 works with fractions strips and word problems, and last, Lesson 5 is a review over all they have learned.
* You will find the needed handouts for Lessons 3 and 4 in the preview section.
