Lesson Plan: Fractions and Decimals

1. Group project Theyre Everywhere! Fractions and Decimals Found in the

Real World
Each group is asked to choose a real world situation from 4 options. The
groups will need to observe how fractions and decimals are used in the real
world situation. The group needs to identify, evaluate, compare, convert,
and explain the use of fractions and decimals in the chosen situation. The
presentation must contain at least one comparison chart which is titled and
labeled. Details outline of performance task requirements will be made
available to the student groups.
2. Fractions in Real Life Journal
3. Individual project
Each student will write a final individual paper evaluating ways in which
they observed fractions and decimals being used in their own lives as
recorded in their journals. This paper must contain calculations of
conversion from fractions to decimals and vice versa. The paper must also
address one example using a bar or pie graph. Five word problems derived
from these observations must be written and included in the paper.
