Fractions Round Table
The purpose of this lesson is for students to consider statements about fractions that will help them solidify their understanding of fractions as numbers.
In previous lessons, students learned what fractions are and how to represent fractions with area diagrams, fraction strips, and on the number line. Students also compared fractions and recognized and generated equivalent fractions. In this lesson, students think about and discuss statements that address their understanding of important ideas about fractions.
If students need additional support with the concepts in this lesson, refer back to Unit 5, Section C in the curriculum materials.
