Compare two fractions with different numerators and different denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators.)

Students have been extending their basic understanding of fractions to making equivalent fractions, as well as comparing and ordering fractions.  Mrs. Manning’s 4th grade class was excited to receive math manipulatives from Mr. Colby Newman’s Woodworking class at the high school to assist screen-shot-2017-02-09-at-12-30-25-pmwith this unit.  

Student teams were challenged to order the fractions from smallest to largest.  First, students had to determine and create appropriate equivalent fractions. Then students had to work together to order the fractions.

THANK YOU, To Mr. LIECHTY AND TO  MR. NEWMAN’S WOODWORKING CLASS WITH YOUR HELP IN MEETING THIS STANDARD IN A FUN, AND HANDS ON WAY!!
