1) How do we add and subtract fractions?
2) What is an equivalent fractions?
3) How do we add and subtract fractions with different denominator?
4) What real world situations could adding and subtracting with fractions useful?
5) Teach the algorithm for adding and subtracting with unlike denominators.
1) Observe Math Models
Students will enter a single player world and observe math models of addition and subtraction of fractions with unlike denominators. There will be help videos that will connect the math models to the algorithm. Once they have made the connection they should enter the next room.
2) Math Mode - Problem Room
Student will complete and solve problems that involve adding and subtracting with fractions by building math models. They will document their work by taking a picture in their portfolio and making a file with a structure block.
3) Old McDonald Had a Farm: Performance Task
Students will go into the 3rd room to meet Old Macdonald and see his plans for his new farm. They will analyze the plan to determine if the plan will work or not, next they will create a better plan. Last, they will build their plan to prove their math works.
1) The student was able to build and explain math models that represent addition and subtraction with fractions with different denominators.
2) The student was able to use fractions to analyze a plan to divide up the farmland.
