Ready for the Bell math resources provide a comprehensive set of print, multimedia resources, and assessments with real world learning explorations.
A Concept Capsule is a combination of a PowerPoint Slide deck with teacher notes for you or your parents to present PLUS a video with audio explaining the concept. These mini-lessons break a concept down into more detail and provide the students with a variety of learning strategies to use as they work to understand and be able to apply the concept in real life. Concept Capsules can be used in three ways:
• To teach a concept that comes from a previous grade curriculum and is needed for the Lesson in the present grade curriculum
• To reinforce a concept that was taught in the present grade curriculum but where more practice or a different approach may be useful
•To extend a concept beyond the present grade curriculum
Students view the Concept Capsule as a start stop video.
Teachers receive PPT and Google Slide versions of the Concept Capsule complete with speaking notes.
This Concept Capsule includes:
- Concept Capsule Video: 5:39
- Concept Capsule Powerpoint: 16 slides
-Concept Capsule Notes: 18 Pages

Common Core Alignment
Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n × a)/(n × b) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators, or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
