# FRACTIONS

In Super Math World, fractions are visualized by the physical breaking and reseembling of numbers. Students will have a multitude of ways to manipulate numbers to solve puzzles.

## STUDENTS WILL

• Break whole numbers into fractions
• Combine fractions into whole numbers
• Use algabraic thinking to solve puzzles
• Differentiate between fractions of different denominators

## BEFORE YOU BEGIN

• This lesson will build basic fluency with fractions.
• Ask students what happens when you break a whole number up.
• Can you combine fractions to make a whole?
• What happens when you cut a number in half?
• No previous experience with fractions lines is required.

## AFTER CLASS DISCUSSION

• What happens when you cut a number in half?
• Are fractions smaller or bigger than wholes?
• Can fractions be negative?
• What happens when you combine a fraction and a whole?
