Unit 1, Lesson 5# Using counters, identify a unit fractional part of a set and identify a set if a unit part is given

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

Students explore sharing sets of objects that can be evenly divided among sharers using square tiles and counters as models. Students also identify a unit fractional part of a set and identify a set if a unit part is given. This lesson focuses on SMP2 (Reason abstractly and quantitatively). Students must decontextualize the quantities of groups/parts formed by the whole set of square tiles into a numerator and denominator as parts of a fraction in relationship to the given whole set.
