Lesson Objective
SWBAT rename fractions as decimals and decimals as fractions.
Lesson Plan
Materials Needed: scrap paper for DN, Example Overhead, white board, dry erase markers, pencils, GP Worksheet, and IND Worksheet.
Vocabulary: whole (or ONE or unit), denominator, numerator, equivalent
……….
Do Now (3 5 min): The teacher writes the following fractions on the board. Students are instructed to write an equivalent fraction on their scrape paper.
1 50 3 6
5 100 4 9
Opening (2 3 min): Teacher quickly reviews answers to the Do Now. The teacher should then state the objective, “Yesterday, we developed equivalent fractions using a rule. Today, we are going to focus fractions and decimals. By the end of this lesson, you will be able to rename fractions as decimals and decimals as fractions.”
Direct Instruction (8  10 min): The teacher begins with the following problems on the board:
Write the following fractions as decimals:
1 7 32 9
10 10 100 100
Using the Example Overhead the teacher should discuss the answers. The teacher can color the grid sections to show fractional parts. For example:
What fractional part of the square is this? 1 grid is shaded. [ 1 ]
10
How would you write 1 as a decimal? [0.1, one of the ten rows are shaded]
10
The teacher should repeat the same process with the other fractions in tenths, including
3 and 5
10 10
The teacher should then move on to the 100s grid and color/shade in one small square and repeat the same questions.
What fractional part of the square is this? 1 grid is shaded in the top grid. [ 1 ]
100
How would you write 1 as a decimal? [0.01, only one of the 100 squares are shaded]
100
The teacher should repeat the same process with the other fractions in hundredths, including
32 and 8
100 100
Guided Practice (10 min): The teacher then passes out the GP Worksheet. Students are broken into groups of 3 to work on the sheet together.
Independent (10 min): The teacher passes out the IND worksheet. The students are asked to complete it individually and turn it in.
Closing (23 min): Teacher calls the attention of the students back toward the front of the class to quickly review the answers to the Independent Practice worksheet/ ask what we learned about.
