Converting Mixed and Improper Fractions; Rotation Day B

Bell Ringer:  101 Questions

Screenshot 2016-09-20 at 6.16.21 PM.png

Lesson Frame:

  • We will rotate through stations practicing converting mixed and improper fractions.
  • I will describe a situation when it is necessary for me to change a mixed number into an improper fraction and an improper fraction to a mixed number.
Lesson:

Group 1 & 4 spent their 30 minutes of rotations on Khan Academy working on "Rewrite mixed numbers and improper fractions".

I combined my Group 2 & 3 to have them work with me at my table playing BUMP (see yesterday's post) and then the Khan exercise.

I created a Number Sense group to prepare for our UIL Number Sense competition in December. Today they completed a Number Sense test and then played BUMP with me.
