#### 1. Is it 1 or more than 1? (Improper Fractions and Mixed Numbers)

Big Idea: Fractions with numerators equal to or larger than the denominator can be written as a whole or mixed number. Models can be used to show improper fractions or mixed numbers.
Standards:
Favorites (24)   Resources (22)   Reflections (1)

#### 2. Name that Fraction

Big Idea: Fractions are part of a whole, and they can be represented in regions and sets.
Standards:
Favorites (12)   Resources (13)   Reflections (1)

#### 3. Number Lines and Equivalent Fractions

Big Idea: Equivalent fractions are fractions that are equal. A number line can be used to identify equivalent fractions.
Standards:
Favorites (30)   Resources (17)   Reflections (2)

#### 4. Comparing Fractions

Big Idea: Using benchmark fractions and drawing visual models are two strategies to compare fractions.
Standards:
Favorites (34)   Resources (16)   Reflections (1)

Big Idea: When students write to explain, it gives a clear picture of their understanding. Visual models can assist the students in solving the problems.

#### 6. Equivalent Fractions

Big Idea: Equivalent fractions are fractions that represent the same amount. They can be created by multiplying or dividing, as well as represented with models.
Standards:
Favorites (28)   Resources (15)   Reflections (1)

#### 7. Who has the largest fraction? (Ordering Fractions)

Big Idea: Models can help students compare fractions, ordering them from least to greatest or greatest to least.
Standards:
Favorites (5)   Resources (16)   Reflections (1)

#### 8. What's Another Name For Me?

Big Idea: Fractions can be written in lowest term by finding an equivalent fraction using division. Multiplication is the inverse of division, therefore, it can be used to help solve the division problem. A model can also be used to determine equivalency.

#### 9. My Personal Pizza

Big Idea: Different fractions can be used to make up a whole.
Standards:
Favorites (2)   Resources (15)   Reflections (1)

#### 10. Fraction Game Day

Big Idea: Computer websites and games are fun ways that the students can apply what they have learned about fractions.
Standards:

#### 11. Adding and Subtracting Fractions with Like Denominators

Big Idea: Fraction strips can be used to help add and subtract fractions with like denominators.
Standards:
Favorites (37)   Resources (15)   Reflections (1)

#### 12. Adding Fractions with Unlike Denominators

Big Idea: You can add fractions with unlike denominators by finding a common denominator or by using fraction strips.
Standards:
Favorites (13)   Resources (17)   Reflections (1)

#### 13. Subtracting Fractions with Unlike Denominators

Big Idea: You can subtract fractions with unlike denominators by finding a common denominator.
Standards:
Favorites (5)   Resources (13)   Reflections (1)

#### 14. Decomposing and Composing Fractions

Big Idea: Fractions can be broken apart into unit fractions.
Standards:
Favorites (16)   Resources (14)   Reflections (1)

#### 15. Teresa's Pizza (Fraction Decomposition)

Big Idea: Fractions can be broken into sums of fractions.
Standards:
Favorites (13)   Resources (16)   Reflections (1)

#### 16. Modeling Adding and Subtracting Mixed Numbers

Big Idea: Adding and subtracting mixed numbers can be modeled by using shapes.
Standards:
Favorites (22)   Resources (13)   Reflections (1)

Big Idea: A mixed number can be solved by changing it to an improper fraction.
Standards:
Favorites (12)   Resources (12)   Reflections (1)

#### 18. Subtracting Mixed Numbers

Big Idea: Students can use models to validate their answers to their subtraction problems of mixed numbers with like denominators.
Standards:
Favorites (2)   Resources (13)   Reflections (1)

#### 19. Using Shapes to Model Fractions as Multiples of Unit Fractions

Big Idea: A unit fraction is a fraction with a numerator of 1. Fractions are multiples of unit fractions.
Standards:
Favorites (11)   Resources (13)   Reflections (1)

#### 20. Multiplying a Fraction by a Whole Number

Big Idea: Students understand that they can group the multiples of fractions in different ways to multiply by a whole number and get the same answer.
Standards:
Favorites (5)   Resources (12)   Reflections (1)

#### 21. Fractions Review

Big Idea: To review skills learned about fractions, students can solve problems and play games.
Standards:
Favorites (1)   Resources (10)   Reflections (1)

#### 22. What I Learned about Fractions Using Voki

Big Idea: Voki is a creative way to get students to assess their own learning about fractions (or any topic), as well as incorporate writing into math.
