"If the total area is 16 sq. units, what is 1/2 of the area? How about 1/4? Can you use that to find 3/4? While this is essentially multiplying fractions (5.NF.B4) Grade 3 introduces the idea in 3.G.A2. These cards are designed as a FUN CHALLENGE puzzle like activity for third graders... using patterns and reinforcing multiplication and division to figure out PART of an AREA given. (Students do not determine the area of a circle, only a fraction of the number provided.)
I have also created a KAHOOT using images from these card as a fun way to kick off the activity with LITTLE TO NO explanation or instruction. :) That's what good mathematicians do!
