Megan Drew Grade: 4th Lesson duration: 30 min

Topic/Title of lesson: Small Group Re-teach: Equivalent Fractions


STANDARD(s) 3.NF.A.3 Explain equivalence of fractions in special cases and compare fractions by reasoning about their size
ADDRESSED 4.NF.A.2 Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators by creating common
denominators or numerators.
CENTRAL FOCUS After an initial lesson on the concept of equivalent fractions and finding them using common denominators, this small
(CF) group with be re-taught this concept.
EU/EQ What is an equivalent fraction?
How can equivalent fractions with different denominators be represented on fraction strips.

LEARNING Students will be able to compare fraction equivalencies by using faction strips.
OBJECTIVES Students will be able to use cross multiplication to determine if fractions are equivalent.
ASSESSMENT Formative assessment – Observation and assistance of students exploration of equivalent fractions with fraction strips
STRATEGY Summative assessment – Exit Ticket
ACADEMIC Numerator, denominator, fractions and equivalent.
PRIOR Numerator is the pieces of the fraction being used. Denominator is the amount of pieces represented in the whole.
KNOWLEDGE AND Multiplication.

Auditory learning styles. fraction strips.  Common denominators

Common Have to have the same denominator or numerator initially.

Misconceptions Fractions have to be simplified to their smelliest form.
When you change the denominator you do not have to change the numerator.
