PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

This product includes a Powerpoint (more than 20 slides) and a graphic organizer (4 pages) for the students to use while you are going through the Powerpoint. This allows for the use of the Interactive Lecture strategy for teaching. The students and teacher are active throughout the "lecture" or presentation of the Powerpoint. The teacher may check student work throughout, as problems are assigned to the student and most are completed on the graphic organizer.

The Powerpoint includes a lesson in simplifying fractions that teaches a method uses true understanding of the mathematics behind the simplifying. Many times students are taught procedures to work with fractions, but these do not provide understanding and are often forgotten or remembered incorrectly.

Using properties of numbers and true understanding, the knowledge of fractions leads to success in algebra as well. The procedures or tricks learned to work with fractions do not work as well when applied to concepts in higher courses, such as Algebra 1 or Algebra 2.

This product also includes an extra copy of the Powerpoint that does not have any "covering up" of the answers.

In this product, this PowerPoint and the graphic organizer are provided in pdf form as well.

Another "Understanding Fractions" product is available: "Fractions: Hands-on Understanding and Adding Fractions with Like Denominators", and there are more on the way.
