Make learning visible! Have your mathematicians follow along as you use paper strips to demonstrate the concept of multiplying unit fractions. Then, offer a different way of solving the problem using a number line. Finally, introduce the standard algorithm. The class then finds an expression to describe a situation where multiplying unit fractions is relevant, and they complete related word problems.
Third through fifth graders view video on non-unit and equivalent fractions. In this fractions lesson, students complete a worksheet to calculate the necessary fraction for an antidote, to find a fraction for bringing back a healing stone and for completing other fraction problems.
First graders explore non-unit fractions. They discuss the parts of fractions and identify the numerator and the denominator. They discuss various examples of fractions. Students write fractions that are equivalent to the ones written by the teacher. They complete a workbook page dealing with fractions.
In this fractions worksheet, 6th graders solve and complete 7 different problems that include fractions. First, they identify and complete the denominator for the unit fractions in each of the squares shown on the sheet. Then, students cut out the square to create their own infinite pine tree that looks like the one pictured on the bottom and complete the table.
