Associated Engage NY module and lesson.
Teachers should play the world in preparation for the classes so they can get familiar with the math models. Each level should be their own lesson and can be accompanied be a game of capture the flag.
1) What is the great 1? (a fraction that equals one such as 4/4)
2) How does ¾ equal 6/8?
3) What is an equivalent fraction?
4) How do we compare the size of fractions?
5) How do we add and subtract fractions?
6) How can we multiply fractions to whole numbers?
7) When do we need to use equivalent fractions?
8) What is the relationship between fractions and decimals?
9) How can we compare decimals?
Students will enter a single player world, build math models and answer questions pertaining to the 4th grade numbers and fractions standards. (NOTE: You can return to the Hub by using the command /tp @s 23 5 5). They will document their learning by taking pictures of their math models and their scores will be recorded by the NPC’s. If they need help there are video tutorials. After the students get familiar with the math models play the Capture the Flag world and build the math models as obstacles.
Level 1 4.NFA.1 Creating Equivalent Fractions with the “Great 1”.
Level 2 4.NFA.2 Comparing Fractions.
Level 3 4.NFA.3 Adding and Subtracting Fractions with Like Denominators.
Level 4 4.NFA.4 Multiplying Whole Number to Fractions.
Level 5 4.NFA.5 Adding fractions with denominators of 10 and 100.
Level 6 4.NFA.6 Converting Decimals to Fractions.
Level 7 4.NFA.7 Comparing Decimals.
Students will turn in a portfolio with their math models and track their scores in the “Score Room”. The game will track how many correct and incorrect answers for each standard.
1) The student was able to create an equivalent fraction by multiplying it by the “great one” (a fraction that equals 1 such as 4/4 or x/x).
2) The student was able to compare fractions with different denominators by creating math models.
3) The student was able to build math models, add, and subtract fractions with equal denominators.
4) The student was able to build math models that show how to multiply whole numbers to fractions.
5) The student was able to build math models that show how to add fractions with denominators of 10 and 100 such as 3/10 + 54/100.
6) The student was able to build math models that convert decimal numbers to their equivalent fractions.
7) The student was able to compare decimals up to the 100th place.
