Students will have a basic understanding of fractions coming into 4th grade. In this unit students will get to explore new ways of representing fractions, including in a set of data, on number lines and using area models. Students will use their knowledge of fractions to compare fractions with like and unlike denominators.
Students have been hard at work on their fractions practice this year, so now it's time to see how far they've come. This end-of-year check-in will help you assess student understanding of simple fractions of wholes.
Help your students understand fractions while adding some color to these shapes! With this helpful math resource, students will create a visual representation of fractions by coloring the parts of the shape indicated by each fraction.
