Product Description
A story about Lady G and Sir Lancelot running a bakery which sells sliced bread highlights the context for the entire fraction unit. Using the context set by the story, finding equivalent fractions, adding fractions, subtracting fractions, multiplying fractions, and dividing fractions are all shown on a two-loaf bread table. Many of the hardest concepts for students become much easier when they can see and understand what a fraction is and why and how the operations work! My students (future elementary teachers) often exclaim that they would have understood and liked fractions if they had been shown the bread model as elementary or middle school students. Common Core State Standards (CCSS) 5.NF.1, 5.NF.2, and 5.NF.7 are all shown graphically with the bread model. When I taught fifth, sixth, seventh, and eighth grade math, I always used the bread model to make fractions understandable and enjoyable. This product was created for your use and enjoyment by Robert van Deusen, Ph.D.
