from Challenger Learning Center (Rochester, New York)

Program image

Our favorite Superhero is in danger! Fraction Hero needs from your students! They will be 100% engaged as they work with hands-on materials to better understand fractions as numbers on the number line. Our hero's exploits will have your students laughing, learning, and finding the joy of math. Comic book style action! Intergalactic Olympic competitions! This one has it all! 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 a trading card as a fraction of a whole set.
3. A number line is made, and fraction tiles are used to represent the trading cards in a collection.
4. A clock is divided into fourths, and a number line is created from fraction tiles to measure time with fractions.
5. Unit fractions are counted as a timeline is built on a number line, to show that fractions continue beyond one whole.
6. The Fraction Hero video is shown.
7. Students must use their number line to make inferences about how long Fraction Hero can survive a Deadly Trap from his nemesis, Captain Irrational.
8. The time numberline is divided into unit fractions of halves and twelfths to show points of Equivalent Fractions on the number line.
9. The Intergalactic Olympics video is shown.
10. Students keep score of long jump and shot put events by marking distances from zero on their number lines.
