set model


Name an example of a set model.

It is important to remember that students must be able to ______ fractions across models.

explore


If students never see fractions represented as a _________, they will struggle to solve any problem or context that is linear.

length


What are the three benchmark fractions?

0, 1/2,1


For fractions less than 1, comparing them what will give a lot of information to students?

the three benchmark fractions


3/20 is close to which benchmark?

0


¾ is between ½ and 1. This is an example of using what?

a fraction benchmark


Can you use the fraction benchmarks for numbers like 3 3/7?

Yes because 3/7 is close to 1/2


What are the 2 requirements for fractional parts?

Must be same size

the name of the fractional parts or shares


The number of fractional parts determines the what?

fractional amount


Partitioning into 4 parts, means each part is __________ of the unit.

1/4

size
shape 

A unit fractions is a fraction with ____ as the numerator.

1 (1/2)


The reciprocal of a unit fraction is a what?

positive number (2)


The top number in a fraction is the _______ number.

counting


The top number in a fraction tells how many what?

parts or shares we have


The top number in a fraction tells how many shares have been what?

counted


The bottom number in a fraction tells how big what is?

the part


The bottom number in a fraction tells what?

Tells what is being counted
Tells how big the part is If it is a 4, it means we are counting fourths; 6 we are counting sixths, etc 

What order should you teach fractions?

simplifying
equivalent comparing 

When teaching ____________ you have students use contexts and models to find different names for a fraction.

equivalent fractions


When teaching __________ you use a traditional algorithm: find the common denominator.

comparing fractions


What activities could you use when teaching equivalent fractions?

dot paper equivalencies


When teaching to put a fraction in simplest form, do not say what?

reducing fractions


What conceptual thought pattern would you use to compare 3/8 and 5/8?

more of the same size parts (same denominator)


What conceptual thought pattern would you use to compare 3/4 and 3/7?

Same number of parts, but parts of different sizes (same numerator)


What conceptual thought pattern would you use to compare 3/7 and 5/8 5/4 and 7/8?

More and less than onehalf or onewhole.


What conceptual thought patter would you use to tell why 9/10 is greater than ¾?

closeness to onehalf or onewhole (each is one fractional part away from one whole)


Addition using fraction tiles. On Monday, Bully ate 1/8 of a pepperoni pizza and 5/8 of a cheese pizza. How much pizza did Bully eat on Monday?

1/8
+1/8, 1/8, 1/8, 1/8, 1/8 __________________ 1/8, 1/8, 1/8, 1/8, 1/8, 1/8 (6/8) 

Multiplication using fraction tiles. There was 4/5 of a gallon of maroon paint in Bully's bucket. Bully used 3/4 of that to paint his house. What part of the original gallon did Bully use?

1. Make the 5ths in bucket horizontally.
2. Make the 4ths in bucket vertically. 3. Circle 3/4ths
