  • Measurement & Data

    Posted by Bronwyn Chen on 1/22/2018

    Unit 8: Measurement

    Essential Questions:

    • How can I convert measurements to larger or smaller units within the same measurement system?
    • How are measurements related within the metric system?
    • How are measurements related within the customary system?
    • How can I use a two-column chart to record and convert measurements within the same system?
    • How can I solve real world measurement problems?
    • How can diagrams help me solve real world measurement problems?

    In this unit, students will be able to:

    • Convert within the same metric units of measurement: kilometer (km), meter (m), millimeter (mm), centimeter (cm), liter (l), milliliter (ml).
    • Convert within the same customary units of measurement: pound (lb), ounce (oz), foot (ft), inch (in), hour (hr), minute (min), second (sec).
    • Use a two-column chart to convert from larger to smaller units and smaller to larger units then record equivalent measurements.
    • Use all four operations to solve word problems involving distances, intervals of time, and money, including problems involving simple fractions or decimals.
    • Use diagrams (e.g., linear model) to solve word problems.

  • Adding & Subtracting Fractions with Unlike Denominators

    Posted by Bronwyn Chen on 11/27/2017

    Unit 5: Adding & Subtracting Fractions with Unlike Denominators

    Essential Questions:
    • How can you use models to add or subtract fractions with different denominators?
    • How can you rewrite a pair of fractions so that they have a common denominator?
    • How can you use a common denominator to add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators?
    • How can you add ans subtract mixed numbers with unlike denominators?

    In this unit, students will be able to:

    • Add and subtract fractions and mixed numbers with unlike denominators
    • Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions with unlike denominators
    • Simplify fractions
    • Create equivalent fractions
    • Rename mixed numbers to improper fractions and improper fractions to mixed numbers

    IXL Skills:

    K.4 - Equivalent Fractions

    K.7 - Least common denominator

    L.6 - Add fractions with unlike denominators using models

    L.8 - Add fractions with unlike denominators

    L.9 - Subtract fractions with unlike denominators using models

    L.10 - Subtract fractions with unlike denominators

    L.11 - Add and Subtract fractions with unlike denominators: word problems

    L.12 - Add 3 or more fractions with unlike denominators

    L.13 - Add 3 or more fractions with unlike denominators: word problems

    L.18 - Add mixed numbers with unlike denominators

    L.19 - Subtract mixed numbers with unlike denominators

    L.20 - Add and Subtract mixed numbers with unlike denominators: word problems

     

    FL Standards:

    MAFS.5.NF.1.1 - Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5/4 = 8/12 + 15/12 = 23/12. (In general, a/b + c/d = (ad + bc)/bd.) 

    MAFS.5.NF.1.2 - Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. Use benchmark fractions and number sense of fractions to estimate mentally and assess the reasonableness of answers. For example, recognize an incorrect result 2/5 + 1/2 = 3/7, by observing that 3/7 < 1/2.
