## Service Description

In this class, students will be exploring the basics of fractions. Through fun activities and lessons, learners will be introduced to the vocabulary of fractions (numerator, denominator, half, third, quarter, part, whole, etc.) and work on understanding fractions as values. Students will learn how to identify how fractions compare to each other, using “greater than” and less than” concepts, and fraction equivalencies. This class is recommended for students ages 7-10. Prior to taking this course students should have experience with basic whole number addition, subtraction, multiplication and division. -What materials are required for the class? Printable worksheets will be emailed for each session. Students will need to print the worksheets prior to the session, and have access to coloring supplies and scissors. Jan. 5th - What are fractions? Students will explore and recognize examples of fractions all around us, and the general idea that fractions represent a whole being split into equal parts. Jan. 10th - Fraction vocabulary. Students will understand the meaning of a fraction's numerator and denominator as it relates to its value, by dividing common shapes into halves and fourths. Jan. 12th - Students will continue visually representing fractions with various numerators and denominators, including thirds, fifths, sixths, and eighths. Jan. 17th - Identifying fractions. Students will identify fractions given various representations, and explore how to represent fractions on a number line. Jan. 19th - Representing story problems using fractions. For example, "Ariana's birthday cake was cut into 10 slices. 7 of the slices were eaten. What fraction of Ariana's cake was eaten?" Jan. 24th - Equivalent fractions. Students will explore equivalent fractions, such as 1/2 and 2/4. Jan. 26th - Comparing fractions with like numerators (e.g. 3/4 and 3/5) or like denominators (e.g. 1/4 and 2/4) using greater than and less than. Jan. 31st - Improper Fractions. Students will understand that an improper fraction, such as 5/4, represents more than a whole, and draw a picture to prove it. -What else do we need to know about?
