Unit 1, Lesson 2

Use fraction circles to model fractional parts greater than a unit fraction and look for patterns

Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education 60 min(s)

Students will work with fraction circles to model fractional parts greater than a unit fraction, record answers in a table, and look for patterns. This lesson focuses on looking for and making use of structure. Through the use of visual models and a recording table, students will see repetitions in the structure of unit fractions and other fractions. Students will use this structure to discover that fractions can be built from unit fractions.
