Topic: Dividing and Multiplying to Find Equivalent Fractions

NY State Learning Standards: Mathematics, Science, and Technology Standard 1: Analysis, Inquiry, and Design
Students will use mathematical analysis and scientific inquiry to seek answers and develop solutions.

Materials:
Mathematics Textbooks (page 401)
Notebooks
Pencils
Different colored chalk

Objectives: Students will be able to name and write equivalent fractions by multiplying and dividing.

Procedure:
1.Ask students What does equivalent mean?
2.Point out that we have already used fraction strips to show equivalent fractions. 3.Explain that we are now going to use multiplication and division to write equivalent fractions. 4.First, start with multiplication and show an example of how to make an equivalent fraction. Remind students that what we do to the top we must do to the bottom (signal hands up .hands down) 5.Use one color of chalk to show what you do to the numerator and another color to show what you do to the denominator. 6.Put another example on the board and ask a volunteer to help write an equivalent fraction. 7.Point out that the number we use to multiply can be any number, as long as what you do to the top, you do to the bottom. 8.Go over multiple examples together and assign textbook examples. Go over various answers. 9.Call students up to the board to show some answers.

10. Go on to show equivalent fractions using division.
11.Explain that the first step in finding equivalent fraction using division is to find the factors of both the numerator and denominator. 12.Circle the common factor and divide both the numerator and denominator by the same number .because what you do to the top, you must do to the bottom. 13.Put some examples on the board and go over with the class. 14.Then, give some examples for the students to do on their own. Then review. 15.Bring the lesson to a...

(Case Study 4.2 LessonPlan)
Sample 1
Subject Area: Math Specific Content: Improper fractions and equivalent mixed numbers
Grade Level: 6th Grade Length of Lesson: 30 minutes
Instructional Objective(s): The learner will write any improper fraction as a mixed number.
State Content Standard / Benchmark / Grade Level Expectations:Math – Patterns, Relationships, and Functions
Content Standard: Students describe the relationships among variables, predict what will happen to one variable as another variable is changed, analyze natural variation and sources of variability, and compare patterns of change.
Middle School Benchmark: Represent variability or change by ordered pairs, tables, graphs, and equations.
Long-Term Unit Objective: The learner will add, subtract, multiply, and divide any two mixed numbers with unlike denominators.
Yesterday’s Lesson: The students worked with a partner and used fraction manipulatives to better understand equivalent mixed numbers and improper fractions.
Tomorrow’s Lesson: The students will learn to write mixed numbers as improper fractions, which will be an inverse of today’s lesson.
Prerequisite Knowledge or Behaviors Needed:
Skills: The students are able to do multi-digit division and multiplication by hand without the use...

Running Head: Reflection Paper
Math has been around for quiet a long time. We all see math in a different way some can grasp it and some cannot. Learning math concept is very frustrating some will master it and some want. I have struggle with math myself. In fact, every time the word math was said throughout my school years and I hated it. Now throughout this course, I realize that I need a great amount of math skills before I can even consider teaching math skills. Math is a difficult concept to teach. So how can I teach math, if I do not understand it myself? This is a question I must ask myself and hopefully one day not questions my math skills.
In math 214 there were endless amount of math concepts learned throughout this course. Probability and Data Analysis apply basic concept of probability. And use appropriate statistical method to analyze data. Billstein, Libeskind, and Lott (2007) we also were introduce to Geometry which we analyze the characteristics and properties of two – and three –dimensional geometric shapes. We also argue mathematics geometric relationships as well as visualize. Billstein, Libeskind, and Lott. (2007) another math concept that was...

Subject Application Lesson Objectives and Objective Led Planning (SA2)
Supporting Analysis
1. My planned sequence of lessons provides for progression across the sequence as a whole by using the AQA exam specification for AS Level and conforming with the statutory guidance. The lesson planning process is vital in order to ensure that pupils can be taught in an effective manner and allow for inclusion of all ranges and abilities. I have planned to assess the baseline by a basic question and answer session on previous lessons on Improving organisational structures and workforce and establish what their perception of Recruitment and Selection is initially.
My lessons are on Recruitment and Selection and begin with defining the recruitment process and how recruitment fits into the workforce planning. This is a progression from the previous lessons on improving organisational structures and workforce and compliments the previous learning. I am building and developing the contents, skills and application students acquired in the previous lessons. The Learning Step continues with ‘why companies feel the need to recruit’ and giving reasons why new employees are required in a company. Role plays to demonstrate the importance of effective recruitment can provide a platform for examining the aims and objectives of business and how businesses need to...

Reviewing Classroom management plan

In reviewing this classroom management plan, I will be looking at the various elements that make up the plan. Such as the visual environment, physical arrangement, class rules and procedures as well as the types of instruction, communication plan and the teacher’s personal philosophy. Classroom management involves teacher actions to create a learning environment that encourages positive social interaction, active engagement in learning, and self- motivation. (Burden 2004)
The management plan discusses how the visual environment will be set up to motivate the students to learn by having a star student board. That recognizes the student’s hard work both intellectually and socially. As well as having the walls decorated with posters and student’s artwork. There will also be plants and animals in the classroom that the students will be take care of in order to develop of sense of responsibility. It is important to make your classroom an attractive, comfortable place. (Burden, 2004) Sensory stimulation is another effect of a good classroom setting. For children, it is easier to learn in a very appealing classroom, because the elements of the things that would appeal to the senses are there. Pictures, colors, sound, and so forth. (Furniture, 2008)The physical...
