This BUNDLE (which includes ALL of the 4th grade Fractions topics in the NF Domain) is actually a compilation of the 10 units individually on this website regarding fractions and decimals (including an optional unit on the American ruler). Purchased in this manner, the price is less than half of the items when purchased individually.
INCLUDED is a TEACHER's GUIDE of every teaching reference utilized by the enclosed problems as well as every (large) diagram needed by the problems in the 10 units. From this alone the units can be thought through and designed. Also included is a SPECIAL RUN of level 1 (simplest) problems that basically provides you with a preview of each of the units' skills.
MY APPROACH TO TEACHING and to the offered UNITS on this website is to pepper the worksheets (and, optionally, the quizzes) with informational guides that serve as text-book-like how-to instructions. How the teacher puts it all together is left to that teacher's unique approach to teaching. In other words, these offerings are PROBLEM-BASED and not lesson-plan based. The difference is profound. I do not pretend to know how you should speak to your students and refuse to offer canned lesson plans--the material will serve as your own guide as well as for the students themselves.
These units can easily require 2 months to master. The problems themselves have evolved from my own experience in a charter school setting.
Four worksheets are included in EACH OF THE UNITS: they have various numbers of questions per skill depending on your needs.
Further, there are 7 assessments (for EACH UNIT) of varying difficulty (level 1 is the easiest and level 4 is the most difficult).
Look carefully at the PREVIEW as it is in the same order as the units themselves and is broken down by Cluster and Standard (in green).
[The problems in All WORKSHEETS and PREVIEWS are printed in difficulty (1 [easy], 2 [not so easy], 3 [proficiency] up to 4 [mastery]) order within a skill. The actual difficulty level appears slightly to the left of the DK box of each problem in a very small font. Also, instructional references appear on worksheets but are optional on quizzes.]

RELATED UNITS (of this BUNDLE):
Additionally, the following units on FRACTIONS have been devised that include a lot of shading, diagrams and exercises: UNIT 1: SIMPLIFYING and REDUCING fractions
, UNIT 2: ORDERING fractions
, UNIT 3: MIXED NUMBERS and IMPROPER fractions
, UNIT 4: ADDING and SUBTRACTING proper fractions
, UNIT 5: ADDING and SUBTRACTING MIXED NUMBERS
, UNIT 6: MULTIPLYING fractions by WHOLE NUMBERS
and, optionally, UNIT: the AMERICAN RULER
Also included are these initial UNITS on DECIMALS—that should directly follow the FRACTIONS units:
the UNIT 1: an INTRODUCTION TO DECIMALS
, UNIT 2: BASIC ADDING and SUBTRACTING of DECIMALS
and UNIT 3: NUMBER LINE and ORDERING of DECIMALS
As a reminder, these units have been very successfully cobbled together after a decade of teaching older students what they never learned in the earlier grades.
