The objectives addressed in this activity include:
-Model situations involving fractions.
-Recognize when addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division is the appropriate operation to solve a problem.
-Write a mathematical statement to represent a given applied situation involving multiply or dividing fractions.
-Multiply or divide any two fractions including mixed numbers fluently.
-Contextualize and explain the meaning of a problem's solution.
The tutorial uses the K-W-L format. Necessary prior knowledge is outlined at the onset of the activity with links provided for users to recall the definitions or methods for adding, subtracting, multiplying, or dividing fractions. The lesson portion of the activity models the SOLVE strategy for approaching word problems and walks students through the process for each operation in relation to fractions. Lastly, students have the opportunity to solve four problems. Correct answers demonstrate one method to solve the problem. Incorrect answers provide suggestions for students to consider as well as reidrecting them to the problem for a second attempt.
This was great! I loved the various websites to activate prior knowledge and review the subject matter. I loved the "Matha Mia" song. My only concern is that not all schools have access to YouTube. The videos were great for the visual learners. I also liked the SOLVE method. This is very explicit and breaks down the concept step-by-step. Your scaffolding is very evident and offers students a good understanding of the concept. Wonderful!
It took me awhile to get the powerpoint going since I had to click on a very specific part of the text in order to move forward.

Wow! What a great STAIR! You did a great job of scaffolding instruction for learners. This powerpoint reviews terms using websites and fun videos, then provides a real context for which students would need to add/subtract/multiply/divide/fractions. I loved the SOLVE method you used to help students think critically step by step while completing each task. Finally, you gave students a chance to put into practice solving fraction problems on their own with guided feedback to try again if necessary. I think this would be a great way to help students learn fraction operations. Great job!
