LESSON PLAN #1

Unit Title: Equivalent Fractions and Decimals
Math Standard: Number, Number Sense, and Operations
Math Indicator: Identify and generate equivalent forms of fractions and decimals.

Objective: Each fourth grade mathematics student will demonstrate and explain that ten tenths is the same as
one whole in both fraction and decimal form; e.g. 5/5=1.0, 6/6=1.0, 2/2=1.0, 10/10=1.0




Materials: pattern blocks, paper, pencil, inch graph paper strips (2 10 x 1 inch blue strips and 2 4 x1 inch
yellow strips), scissors, worksheet (see attachment)




Procedures:
1. Write the number 1 on the board. Ask: Is there any other way to represent the number 1? Explain to
students that they will discover how to write the number 1 in fraction form in many different ways and in
decimal form. Before they begin the activity, read through the directions on the worksheet and explain what
they are expected to do. Review the assessment.

2. Pass out pattern blocks and worksheets. Using the pattern blocks, have each student do #1 and discuss their
answers. Repeat with #2, #3, #4.

3. Have them compare their findings and discuss what discoveries that they made. Students should conclude
that 1/1=1.0, 2/2=1.0, 3/3=1.0, 6/6 =1.0. So any number over itself equals 1.0.

4. Have students write their discoveries and conclusions from this activity in their own words on the space
provided on their worksheet.

5. Pass out yellow and blue strips and scissors.

6. Using one of the yellow strips, have students complete #5 on the worksheet and discuss their answers. Using
the other yellow strip, repeat the same process with #6.

7. Discuss discoveries and conclusions. Students should conclude that 4/4=1.0, 8/8=1.0 so any number over
itself equals 1.0. They may also discover equivalent fractions such as 2/8=1/4, 6/8=3/4, etc.

8. Have students write their discoveries and conclusions from this activity in their own words on the space
provided on the worksheet.

9. Using the blue strips have students complete #8 and #9 on the worksheet individually and discuss their
answers, discoveries, and conclusions.

10. Have students write their discoveries and conclusions from this activity in their own words on the space
provided on the worksheet.
Product: Working Worksheet (see attachment)




Assessment Criteria: On the working worksheet, students will show their conceptual knowledge of this concept
through written words and sentences. Out of the three opportunities to explain this concept on the worksheet,
students should show full understanding.

Rubric: 3= Shows complete understanding

        2= Shows some understanding

        1= Shows little understanding

        0= Shows no understanding

LESSON PLAN #4

Unit Title: Equivalent Fractions and Decimals
Math Standard: Number, Number Sense and Operations
Math Indicator: Identify and generate equivalent forms of fractions and decimals

Objective:
       Each 4th grade mathematics student will use a 10x10 square and number line to show equivalent forms
       of familiar fractions and decimals .




Materials:
       Decimal square paper (3 copies for each student)
       Construction paper
       Crayons/colored pencils
       Paper for group number lines
       Post-it notes



Procedures:
      1. Have students cut out 10 x 10 square and ten bar grids. With a 10x10 square have students fold the
          square in ½. Then shade in ½. Glue this shaded square on a piece of construction paper. Under the
          square write the fraction in familiar form, then as a base ten fraction, and finally as a decimal. (1/2,
          50/100, 0.5)

       2. Next explore fourths. (Repeat the process from # 1) Have the students show ¼ in 2 different ways
          (example shading in a 5x5 square and using strips). Repeat for ¾.

       3. Let students explore with shaded diagrams that they made to discover equivalent fraction and
          decimal pairs. Discuss findings and record on chalkboard.

       4. Next explore fifths using the 10 x 10 paper following the process in # 1.

       5. Have students explore tenths using the ten bar grid by relating diagrams to the diagrams made in
          exploring fifths. ( example: 4/10 =2/5 =0.4)

       Extending the lesson using number lines to show equivalent fraction/decimal pairs.

       6. Give each student a post-it with a fraction, number, or decimal on it. Students go to the board and
          without talking, put their post-its on the board from least to greatest in number line format. (1/2,
          5/10, 50/100, 0.5, ¼, 25/100, 0.25, ¾, 75/100, 0.75, 1/5, 2/10, 20/100, 0.2, 2/5, 4/10, 40/100, 0.4,

Procedures:
      Begin by asking students to predict what part of a chapter in their textbook contains pictures.
      Discuss this in equivalent decimals and fractions.

       Decide with the class what will be considered pictures (graphs, photos, etc.)

       Divide the class into small groups and give each group a set of materials.

       Assign the same chapter to all groups or vary the activity by assigning different chapters in the same
       book or use different books.

       Explain the worksheet to students to be sure they know what is expected of them. Tell students whether
       you expect one worksheet per group or one per each student. Be sure to explain to the students that the
       decimal and fraction data from each page must be in equivalent forms. Now might be a good time to
       review equivalent forms of fractions and decimals. Discuss with students appropriate ways to record
       data (ex charts).

       Allow student groups to determine how they are going to use the 100 grid to collect the data.
       Have groups experiment with the grid transparency and then bring the whole group back together to
       discuss their findings. (Example-lay the transparency on the page and color in with markers all the
       squares that cover the picture-count the colored squares.)
       Then instruct the students to use the grid to check each page in the chapter and record the data.

       Discuss with students how to add and find the mean.

       When groups have completed the worksheet, compare results as a class, and discuss.



Product:
       Completed worksheet (one per group or one per each student-specify in directions) that shows data
       collected in equivalent decimal and fraction forms, explanation of how the grid sheet was used and
       explanation of results.
Assessment Criteria:
      Rubric criteria: a) data collected in equivalent forms, b) reasonable explanation of how the group used
      the grid, c) mean in fraction and decimal form, d) reasonable explanation of results

       4= all 4 a, b, c, d correct

       3= 3 out of 4 correct

       2= 2 out of 4 correct

       1= 1 out of 4 correct

       0= 0 correct
