Finding Equivalent Fractions


Finding Equivalent Fractions

Logo for Finding Equivalent Fractions
This is a goal directed lesson plan which guides students in finding equivalent fractions using dot paper rectangles and real life representations. The assessment can be created using a document on a computer that can be manipulated by the student, or it can be printed for use on paper. The teacher will need to create problems that involve students dividing objects into pieces of different size, and exploring whether or not they represent equivalent fractions.

I really like the different stages in this lesson. The students will know where they are at all times. Ther are lots of oppoertunites for the students to discuss their learning. I like the example problem of the Pizzas at a sleepover. This gives a great opportunity to connect prior learning. I would really like to hear how your students got on with this lesson. Great Job.

Technical Remarks:

Good use of Technology. I enjoyed seeing how you used the document camera. I am trying to get some for my school now.
