EngageNY 60 min(s)Support for English Language Learners

In this lesson, students use a number bond to represent the decomposition of one whole into fourths and the compositions of fourths into one whole. Students use paper to create eights and represent the various decompositions. Finally, students decompose 5/6 by expressing the decompositions as a sum of fractions with the same denominator.
