Estimation with Fractions Assessment

Lesson Frame

  • We will solve problems involving the addition and subtraction of fractions.
  • I will use benchmark fractions to estimate mentally and assess the reasonableness of my answers


For the assessment, I posed 7 problems to my classes through a Google form. Each of the questions required the students to estimate sums or differences using fractions.

Think Through Math

Once students had completed the assessment, they spent time on Think Through Math. As usual, I gave the final 10 minutes of our Friday to use their earned points on their Avatar or to donate to a charity.
