Fraction Learning Pathway

Kim's Grade 7-8 Fractions Planning Map

Fractions
 

Key planning considerations: Base planning on the Fractions Learning pathways (FLP). Punctuate instruction with two to five lessons per month focusing on a new concept in order to develop and solidify ideas. Embedding fractions into current curriculum in order to allow stduents to understand, reinforce and extend the concepts.

Topic Representing Fractions using Linear Models Representing Fractions using Linear and Area Models
Month September October
Concepts on FLP Unit A, Comp E Unit B, Unit C, Unit D, Unit E, Op B
Tasks (including extensions and revisits)
Assessment: Diagnostics - Represent 25 or 410 in as many ways as you can (Unit B)
Assessment: Diagnostics - Represent the fractions 46 or 57 using a set, area and number line mode.
