Park fractions

Learning Material  |  Interactive Lesson  |  RAR

Help a town planner to design two site plans for a park. Assign regions on a grid for different uses such as picnic tables, swings, sandpits or ponds. Use this tool to explore how to express fractions and display them in different ways. Select boxes within the grid and view or enter corresponding fractions and their equivalents. Interact with a dynamic number line to express fractions differently. Move on to a harder activity where you first set the site dimensions to make a grid. This learning object is a combination of two objects in a series.
1. Students represent fractions as parts of an array.
2. Students write fractions to match area models.
3. Students identify equivalent fractions.
4. Students represent fractions as numbers on a number line.
5. Students explore common denominators.
6. Students add fractions informally.
