Tuesday--Day 1

Objective(s): Using an Algorithm to Divide Fractions

Instructional Strategies:

• Coordinate (orally) different strategies for dividing by a fraction.
• Find the quotient of two fractions, and explain (orally, in writing, and using other representations) the solution method.
• Generalize a process for dividing a number by a fraction, and justify (orally) why this can be abstracted as n times b/a..

Assessments: formative

Wednesday--Day 2

Objective(s):  Fractional Lengths

Instructional Strategies:

• Apply dividing by fractions to solve a problem about comparing lengths or measuring with non-standard units, and explain (orally and in writing) the solution method.
• Interpret a question (in written language) about multiplicative comparison, e.g., “How many times as long?” and write a division equation to represent it.

Assessments: formative

Thursday--Day 3 (Assembly 1:15)

Objective(s): Rectangles with Fractional Side Lengths

Instructional Strategies:

• Apply dividing by fractions to calculate the side length of a rectangle, given its area and the other side length.
• Coordinate (orally) diagrams and equations that represent the area of a rectangle with fractional side lengths.
• Draw and label a diagram to justify the area of a rectangle with fractional side lengths.

Assessments: formative

Friday--Day 4

Objective(s): Fractional Lengths in Triangles and Prisms

Instructional Strategies:

• Apply dividing by fractions to calculate the base or height of a triangle, given its area and the other measurement.
• Determine the volume of a rectangular prism by counting how many -inch or -inch cubes it takes to build, and explain (orally and in writing) the solution method.
• Generalize that the volume of a rectangular prism with fractional edge lengths can be found by multiplying the edge lengths.
