Third Grade Fraction Interactions
The Ann Arbor Hands On Museum brought Interactions with Fractions to
Mrs. Mitchell's third grade class, via video conference, this week.
Using a game show format, students were able to create fractions as
their peers performed a variety of activities.
While several students "danced" ballet, disco, and the one-person Tango,
students in the audience calculated the fraction of students dancing
each style of dance.
Students also worked in pairs to "shoot hoops" into each other's
waiting arms. What fraction of shots did our students make? Some 6/9,
some 8/11 and some are ready for the NCAA with 11/11!
Students worked in teams with fractions pieces to answer questions as
well. These interactions got the students moving and thinking about
numerators, denominators, and mixed fractions too!
