Can your students model fractions multiple ways?
When working with fractions, students need to work with a variety of representations. Students who work with multiple models will develop deeper understanding of fractions and will be more likely to apply their knowledge when presented with new problems or situations.
There are three fundamental types of models that assists in building essential understanding of fractions. The activities in this pack will use all three:
Linear models- fractions represented in a linear form, such as number line
Area models- fractions represented as parts of a shape, such as a circle or rectangle
Discrete models- fractions represented by a group of objects, often referred to as a “Set”
During this activity, students will draw one fraction card from the deck and represent the fraction using all three types of models. Next, they will compare their models to those of their peers working at the center.
