**INDIVIDUAL WORK:**

- Distribute the Hundreds Board (http://www.enasco.com/pdfs/TB21533T.pdf ) and ask students to do the following on prompt:

Cross out every other number starting at 2.Cross out every third number starting at 3.(You don't have to check every fourth number. Why?)Cross out every fifth number starting at 5(You don't have to check every sixth number. Why?)Cross out every seventh number starting at 7(You don't have to check every eighth number. Why?)(You don't have to check every ninth number. Why?)(You don't have to check every tenth number. Why?)

The numbers that are not crossed out are primes.

**GROUP WORK:**Divide the class into two groups. Play the Prime Factorization Challenge Game, ask them to compete with another group and test how much students know about factors and multiples.

METHODS & STRATEGIES:

**WHOLE GROUP DISCUSSION:**- Review the math vocabulary to the students. http://www.teachers.ash.org.au/jeather/maths/dictionary.html

GROUP WORK: The Factor Game

Divide the class into two teams. The class will modify the game from the book. In this case we will play the game with a PPT on the board. The factor Game Rules on page 7 of Connected Mathematics will still apply.

http://www.phschool.com/atschool/cmp2/active_math/site/Grade6/FactorGame/

**WHOLE GROUP DISCUSSION**

- As a debriefing, show the video review of how to use Factor Trees to complete Prime Factorization. http://www.teachertube.com/view_video.php?viewkey=de67e146a2f810ded7bb

**DAY 3**

**OBJECTIVES:**After the lesson, students will be able to:

- Identify an improper fraction represented by a model of mixed number.

- Simplify a fraction

- Determine a set of equivalent fractions

**MATERIALS:**

- Math Dictionary http://www.teachers.ash.org.au/jeather/maths/dictionary.html

- Fractions PPT http://jc-schools.net/PPT/Fractions%20I.ppt

**METHODS & STRATEGIES:WHOLE GROUP DISCUSSION:**- Discuss fraction examples with class.

- Ask question regarding examples.

- Where do you see fractions in life?

- Show four pre-made examples of fractions found in life.

- Using the PowerPoint presentation, discuss the vocabulary terms and concepts used for this unit. http://jc-schools.net/PPT/Fractions%20I.ppt

- Can you think of where you might find fractions outside of the classroom.

- Discuss fractions outside of the room, how are they used in everyday life?

**INDIVIDUAL:**Answer board exercises on fractions; give the picture and ask the students fraction questions (example: what fraction of the pie is purple?)

**WHOLE GROUP DISCUSSION:**Review : fractions, numerator, denominator using the Math Dictionary http://www.teachers.ash.org.au/jeather/maths/dictionary.html

**PAIR & SHARE:**Give the strips of colored papers to the students. Ask them to show ¼, 2/4 , ¾ , 4/4 with the green strips. Show 1/5, 2/5, 3/5, 4/5, 5/5 with the pink strips, and show 1/3, 2/3, 3/3 with orange strips.

**INDIVIDUAL:**Answer exercises on page 5 exercise 1-A 29-48 and exercise 1-B 1-9.

**DAY 4**

**OBJECTIVES:**After the lesson, students will be able to:

- Identify an improper fraction represented by a model of mixed number.

- Simplify a fraction

- Determine a set of equivalent fractions

**MATERIALS:**

- Math Dictionary http://www.teachers.ash.org.au/jeather/maths/dictionary.html

- Fractions PPT http://jc-schools.net/PPT/Fractions%20II.ppt

- Equivalent fractions PPT http://jc-schools.net/PPT/Fractions%20IV.ppt

**METHODS & STRATEGIES:**

**WHOLE GROUP DISCUSSION:**Review the fraction vocabulary and concepts with this video:

**SMALL GROUP:**Divide the students into two groups. Compete with each other for this Fractions Game. http://jc-schools.net/PPT/Fractions%20II.ppt

**CLASS ACTIVITY:**Remember Go Fish? It's great for reviewing equivalent fractions. Since Go Fish is all based on matches, it naturally works for matching equivalent fractions. This game should be played in groups of 4 or less.

Instructions for making the cards:1. On one side of an index card, write a fraction. Write an equivalent fraction on another index card. Continue writing pairs of equivalent fractions. For each group of students playing, they need about 30 cards (this makes 15 pairs). I like to decorate one side of the card and laminate them for durability, but neither of these steps is necessary.

2. Put students in groups of not more than 4.

**RULES:**Choosing a dealer: Student with the earliest birthday this year.Dealer deals 5 cards to each student and puts the rest in a scattered pile in the middle of the group. Students can put down any matches they have. The student to the dealer's left asks the student of his/her choice: "Do you have a fraction equivalent to (for example) 1/2?" If that student has a match, all group members need to check for accuracy! If not, the student "goes fishing." Again, if a match is found, all group members check for accuracy.Continue play until the "pond" is depleted. The student with the most matches is the winner!

.

**DAY 5**

**After the lesson, students will be able to:**

- Adding Fractions PPT http://jc-schools.net/PPT/Fractions%20VII.ppt

- Subtracting Fractions PPT http://jc-schools.net/PPT/Fractions%20VIII.ppt

**WHOLE CLASS ACTIVITY:**On half of the 3 X 5 notecards write an unlike denominator addition or subtraction problem. On the other half of the note cards, write the corresponding common denominators to the problems on the other half. In random order, hand out the note cards and have the students find their matching partner and work the problem out.
