In this one-time class, students will be introduced to the step of Cross Reducing before multiplying fractions. This class will be structured using the following format: introductions, class expectations, lesson, review game, and assessment. My teaching style follows the "I do, we do, you do" teaching format so that students are able to better understand the material by first seeing the process modeled. I will also include a ZAP review game to keep students actively engaged throughout the...
Students will learn the step of Cross Reducing fractions before multiplying them to arrive at an answer in simplest terms.
I have been a fifth-grade teacher, first-grade teacher, and I have teaching experience with all grades in between. While a classroom teacher, I had the opportunity to be apart of my district's math cadre team and was able to co-facilitate a summer math institute for 3rd-5th grade teachers in my county. Over the past year and a half, I have worked as a reading and math interventionist for K-6th grade students. I am thankful for all these opportunities because they have enabled me to follow my passion for teaching mathematics.
There will be no homework for this class.
I will display problems as needed throughout the lesson, so I simply recommend that students either have a white board/dry-erase marker or a piece of paper/pencil available to work through each problem. Thank you!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The learner will complete an "exit ticket" as an informal assessment at the end of class. This simply means that students will be given 1-2 final problems to complete independently. They will then share their answers and explanations while earning game points for their participation. This will allow learner progress to be assessed in a fun, non-threatening learning environment.
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
