In our fractions unit the students worked to understand how to compare some simple proper fractions. To practice this, we used fraction tiles to help solve comparison questions, as well as simple addition and subtraction questions.
Ysa “In this activity, we had laminated paper cutouts of fraction bricks to see what fractions equaled what other fractions. It was really fun and sometimes the results were really surprising. We also had a contest to see who, while following certain rules, could find the most combinations that equaled one. I had a lot of fun!”
