3.NF.A.2- Fractions on a Number Line
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

This task gives students the opportunity to analyze two number lines in order to identify the one that correctly shows an improper fraction. Students then communicate their understanding by describing the reasoning they used to determine their answer was correct. It is aligned to evidence statement 3.C.6-1

The students will use ACC basketball statistics to practice the process of converting fractions to decimals then to percents and will learn how to create and edit a spreadsheet. They will then use this spreadsheet to analyze their data. This unit is done during the basketball season which takes approximately 15 weeks from the middle of November to the middle of March. Teachers must have Clarisworks to open the sample spreadsheet in the lesson, but may recreate it in another spreadsheet program.

Comparing Fractions With Unlike Denominators
Conditions of Use:
No Strings Attached
Rating

This lesson focuses on comparing and ordering fractions in ways that encourage deeper understanding of’ ‘number sense’ by supporting learners to consider different techniques to order and compare fractions with different numerators and denominators. The three techniques covered in this lesson are those used to compare fractions with like numerators or denominators, unlike numerators or denominators and by comparing to a 1/2 benchmark. Emphasis are placed on the two latter techniques. Activities and practice exercises involve real-world problems including sales discounts, cooking measurements and school score reports.

Decimals, Fractions & Percentages
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

Students learn about and practice converting between fractions, decimals and percentages. Using a LEGO® MINDSTORMS® NXT robot and a touch sensor, each group inputs a fraction of its choosing. Team members convert this same fraction into a decimal, and then a percentage via hand calculations, and double check their work using the NXT robot. Then they observe the robot moving forward and record that distance. Students learn that the distance moved is a fraction of the full distance, based on the fraction that they input, so if they input ½, the robot moves half of the original distance. From this, students work backwards to compute the full distance. Groups then compete in a game in which they are challenged to move the robot as close as possible to a target distance by inputting a fraction into the NXT bot.

Fraction Bars - A Conceptual Understanding
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

Many students find working with fractions difficult because they do not understand the abstract symbols used to represent fractions. As a result, the algorithmic process of fraction arithmetic is a series of steps that have no real meaning.

This training will teach students how to use fraction bars to gain a conceptual understanding of fractions. This conceptual understanding will help the student build a strong foundation for a traditional in-depth study of fractions.

Participants will use fraction bars to add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions. Lessons include student practice sets designed to maximize instruction by creating an environment where students actively participate in the learning process.

Let's Take a Slice of Pi
Conditions of Use:
Read the Fine Print
Rating

Working as a team, students discover that the value of pi (3.1415926...) is a constant and applies to all different sized circles. The team builds a basic robot and programs it to travel in a circular motion. A marker attached to the robot chassis draws a circle on the ground as the robot travels the programmed circular path. Students measure the circle's circumference and diameter and calculate pi by dividing the circumference by the diameter. They discover the pi and circumference relationship; the circumference of a circle divided by the diameter is the value of pi.

A Recipe for Air
Conditions of Use:

Why do we care about air? Breathe in, breathe out, breathe in... most, if not all, humans do this automatically. Do we really know what is in the air we breathe? In this activity, students use M&M(TM) candies to create pie graphs that show their understanding of the composition of air. They discuss why knowing this information is important to engineers and how engineers use this information to improve technology to better care for our planet.
