Kerry's Grade 9 Applied Fractions Planning Map
Key planning suggestions: Use the Fractions Learning Pathways (FLP) to support planning. Punctuate instruction (revisit and extend) with two to five lessons per month focusing on fractions concepts in order to develop and solifidy ideas. Embed fractions throughout the curriculum to allow students opportunities to deepen understanding, by reinforcing and extending concepts over time.

Continue to select tasks from cells based on assessment for learning information. Ensure that students have opportunities to solve prompts with and without contexts. Students will benefit from opportunities to visualize representations of operations.  Continue to select tasks from cells based on assessment for learning information. Embed fractional thinking to solve problems involving angle geometry (e.g., determine the measure of each angle in a regular octagon).
