4 Cluster 7 Lessons
In this lesson, students are given an order for cookies with a variety of toppings. Students will add fractions to create the cookies and fulfill the order.
In this lesson, students will solve word problems involving multiplication of a fraction and a whole number using models, length models, and both addition and multiplication equations. They will then do a gallery walk and critique others’ reasoning.
In this lesson students use pattern blocks to explore and solve tasks involving the multiplication of fractions by a whole number.
In this lesson, students explore partitioning into fractional parts by dividing sandwiches among different sized groups of students. During exploration, students consider different ways that sandwiches can be decomposed so that children in the groups have an equal amount. Students compare the amounts of sandwiches each person gets and explore equality among fractions through class discussion.
In this lesson, students play a game in which they try to cover up hexagons using pattern block pieces. They use equivalent fractions to make exchanges and represent the compositions with equations.
