This video demonstrates how to use the fraction tiles for add fractions with unlike denominators. Students may write the multiples for each denominator to determine the least common denominator. Fractions tiles can be used to show how to represent equivalent fractions with the least common denominator.
This video demonstrates how to use fraction circles to add fractions. If students are adding fractions with unlike denominators, they can also practice finding the missing part of the whole as a solution strategy.
This video demonstrates how to use fraction tiles to add fractions. Fraction tiles easily allow students to practice adding fractions of like or unlike denominators. Students should be familiar with the concept of mixed numbers or improper fractions before using fraction tiles to add fractions that will equal a fraction greater than 1.
This video demonstrates how to teach students to think flexibly about fractions. Similar to whole numbers, fractions can be put together and taken apart in many different combinations. Students should practice identifying these combinations so that they can become fluent with fraction addition and subtraction.
This video demonstrates how to use fraction tiles to model fraction addition with unit fractions that sum to 1. After a teacher models how to appropriately use fraction tiles to solve addition problems, students can use the tools to explore fractions with guided and independent practice.
This video demonstrates how to use fraction tiles to model fraction addition with unit fractions. After a teacher models how to appropriately use fraction tiles to solve addition problems, students can use the tools to explore fractions with guided and independent practice.
This series of 22 videos provides brief instructional examples for supporting students who need intensive instruction in the area of fractions. Within college- and career-ready standards fractions are typically taught in Grades 3-5. Computation of fractions covers skills focused on building fractions from unit fractions—applying and extending operations of whole numbers. These videos may be used as these concepts are introduced, or with students in higher grade levels who continue to struggle with the concepts. Special education teachers, math interventionists, and others working with struggling students may find these videos helpful. Review of Fraction Vocabulary Adding Fractions with Like Denominators: An example with 1/8
This video reviews key vocabulary related to fractions. It is important that teachers model the use of precise mathematical language so that students understand how to use correct vocabulary and can accurately communicate their ideas and solutions strategies related to fractions.
In this video, Amy McKenna, a special educator in Bristol Warren Regional School District shares her experience with data-based individualization (DBI). Amy discusses how she learned about DBI, the impact her use of the DBI process had on students she worked with, and how DBI helped changed her practice as a special educator.
