Most adults conceptualize "fractions", but are discouraged by the complexity of all the rules regarding adding, subtracting, and simplifying fractions. This introduction does a nice job of visualizing these processes for students.
These are wonderful resources. I would have loved more explanation on your part, but I was able to work with all resources. I didn't see how these were translated into other languages.
The last resource has a link to engage ny. If you scroll down the page, you can see other languages. It is a great resource for newcomers.
The second iresource, "Student Practice Interactive for Naming Fractions" appears twice on this curriculum guide. It should probably be used only AFTER "Naming of Fractions."
Thank you! I made the change.
Important topic to focus on. -- lesson can be improved by providing a written plan for how best to pedagogically use these resources. Not practical to simply have students jump from one website to another but perhaps identify which resources is best considering the specific objective of the class.
