PowerPoint and PDF from Fish Lake

bass (the fish)The following PowerPoint presentations were created to complement the Common Core-aligned concepts as they relate to fractions as were covered in Fish Lake. 

We’ve put these topics in order of how we would teach them in a class, but your choice may vary.¬† For example, we tend to give a lot of examples of equivalent fractions and then when students are saying, “How do you FIND those equivalent fractions?” we go into renaming, least common multiples and common denominators. You might decide to do the explanations and then the examples, or example – explanation – example, which is actually our preferred method but it didn’t fit in a table well.
