As a Texas teacher, the products I make are designed around the standards for the state of Texas, known as the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills (TEKS) and are carefully crafted to help students be successful on the Texas STAAR test. I use the rigor of the TEKS and released STAAR assessments as models and guides when putting together lessons and materials for my students. Thus, I am careful to post products that, in my judgment, align with these standards. I am not affiliated in any way with these entities and any and all claims of alignment are my claims, not those of the groups behind the TEKS or STAAR test.

There are many teachers in Common Core states looking for quality materials. If one of my TEKS based products addresses standards in the Common Core, I will include those standards in this description. I do not teach the Common Core in my classroom, but am familiar with the standards. I am not affiliated with the entity behind Common Core and all claims of alignment are my judgment, not those of the groups behind the Common Core.

(5.2) Number, operation, and quantitative reasoning. The student uses fractions in problem-solving situations. The student is expected to:

(A) generate a fraction equivalent to a given fraction such as 1/2 and 3/6 or 4/12 and 1/3

(B) generate a mixed number equivalent to a given improper fraction or generate an improper fraction equivalent to a given mixed number

***************COMMON CORE ***************
CCSS.Math.Content.4.NF.A.1 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.
