Vocabulary Acquisition and Use

Week of 4/22-4/26/13-Fractions

Fraction assessment 4/26 (You may want to select certain questions as an Exit Ticket/Check For Understanding/small groups to review/rotations, etc.)

Extend understanding of fraction equivalence and ordering.
1. Explain why a fraction a/b is equivalent to a fraction (n × a)/(n × b)
by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and
size of the [[#|parts]] differ even though the two fractions themselves are
the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent
fractions.

2. Compare two fractions with different numerators and different
denominators, e.g., by creating common denominators or numerators,
or by comparing to a benchmark fraction such as 1/2. Recognize that
comparisons are valid only when the two fractions refer to the same
whole. Record the results of comparisons with symbols >, =, or <, and
justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model.
Build fractions from unit fractions by applying and extending
previous understandings of operations on whole numbers.
3. Understand a fraction a/b with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/b.
Comparing and Ordering fractions 4/23
Comparing and Ordering fractions 4/23, Comparing and Ordering decimals 4/26
Comparing Fractions wkst. 4/23
Organizing Fractions(Challenging) 4/23
a. Understand addition and subtraction of fractions as joining and
separating parts referring to the same whole.
Adding and subtracting fractions w/ unlike denominators 4/24
Adding and subtracting fractions w/ like denominators 4/24
b. Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the
same denominator in more than one way, recording each
decomposition by an equation. Justify decompositions, e.g., by
using a visual fraction model. Examples: 3/8 = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 ;
3/8 = 1/8 + 2/8 ; 2 1/8 = 1 + 1 + 1/8 = 8/8 + 8/8 + 1/8.

c. Add and subtract mixed numbers with like denominators, e.g., by
replacing each mixed number with an equivalent fraction, and/or
by using properties of operations and the relationship between
addition and subtraction.
d. Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction
of fractions referring to the same whole and having like
denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations
to represent the problem.
4. Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to
multiply a fraction by a whole number.
a. Understand a fraction a/b as a multiple of 1/b. For example, use
a visual fraction model to represent 5/4 as the product 5 × (1/4),
recording the conclusion by the equation 5/4 = 5 × (1/4).
b. Understand a multiple of a/b as a multiple of 1/b, and use this
understanding to multiply a fraction by a whole number. For
example, use a visual fraction model to express 3 × (2/5) as 6 × (1/5),
recognizing this product as 6/5. (In general, n × (a/b) = (n × a)/b.)
c. Solve word problems involving multiplication of a fraction by a
whole number, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations
to represent the problem. For example, if each person at a party will
eat 3/8 of a pound of roast beef, and there will be 5 people at the
party, how many pounds of roast beef will be needed? Between what
two whole numbers does your answer lie?
3Grade 4 expectations in this domain are limited to fractions with denominators 2,
3, 4, 5, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 100.

Understand decimal notation for fractions, and compare decimal
fractions.
5. Express a fraction with denominator 10 as an equivalent fraction with
denominator 100, and use this technique to add two fractions with
respective denominators 10 and 100. 4 For example, express 3/10 as
30/100, and add 3/10 + 4/100 = 34/100.
6. Use decimal notation for fractions with denominators 10 or 100. For
example, rewrite 0.62 as 62/100; describe a length as 0.62 meters; locate
0.62 on a number line diagram.
7. Compare two decimals to hundredths by reasoning about their size.
Recognize that comparisons are valid only when the two decimals
refer to the same whole. Record the results of comparisons with the
symbols >, =, or <, and justify the conclusions, e.g., by using a visual
model.

Week of 4/29-5/3- Comparing information across selections

Craft and Structure

  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.4.5 Explain major differences between poems, drama, and prose, and refer to the structural elements of poems (e.g., verse, rhythm, meter) and drama (e.g., casts of characters, settings, descriptions, dialogue, stage directions) when writing or speaking about a text.
  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.4.6 Compare and contrast the point of view from which different stories are narrated, including the difference between first- and third-person narrations.

Integration of Knowledge and Ideas

  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.4.7 Make connections between the text of a story or drama and a visual or oral presentation of the text, identifying where each version reflects specific descriptions and directions in the text.
  • (RL.4.8 not applicable to literature)
  • CCSS.ELA-Literacy.RL.4.9 Compare and contrast the treatment of similar themes and topics (e.g., opposition of good and evil) and patterns of events (e.g., the quest) in stories, myths, and traditional literature from different cultures.
