Fraction Hero #1 - Fractions as Sharing

from Challenger Learning Center (Rochester, New York)

Program image

Join Professor Raab for an exciting and colorful introduction to the world of Fractions. Your students will be 100% engaged as they work with hands-on materials to better understand unit fractions as expressions of sharing and division. Our over-the-top Superhero, Fraction Hero, will encourage learning and laughter as he breathes life into the learning of this important content. Must be seen to be believed! This program is derived from Grade 3, Module 5 of the Common Core Standards in Math, standard 3.NF.1. from EngageNY.

Program Details

Format

1. This program begins with an introduction to Professor Raab in the Math Lab.
2. We discuss division problems.
3. Then we introduce Fraction Hero with a short video to solve a division problem that requires sharing.
4. Students will have time to make play-doh candy bars and partition them using plastic knives to make equal shares.
5. We return to Fraction Hero who introduces the idea of Unit Fractions as expressions of equal shares. Counting of Unit Fractions is practiced.
6. Students create fraction strips and use fraction tiles to compare unit fractions.
7. A video call from Andre spurs a discussion about comparing unit fractions. We count unit fractions and discuss how much of a cake is eaten and uneaten.
8. A short game show is played to reinforce and assess the learning.

Objectives

The Participant will:

Partition a Whole Into Equal Parts, identifying and counting Unit Fractions using concrete models, fraction strips, and pictorial area models

Represent and Identify Fractional Parts of Different Wholes

Partition a Whole into Equal Parts to identify the Unit Fraction, and build Non-Unit Fractions Less than One from Unit Fractions

Identify and Represent Shaded and Non-Shaded Parts of One Whole as Fractions.

Represent Parts of One Whole as Fractions with Number Bonds
