# fractions Fish Lake is a lot more like a video game than anything that plays on Chromebooks AND it gives an in-depth introduction to fractions.

## 5 Ways Fish Lake helps school from home How do you know what standards are being addressed while students are learning at home? Fish Lake reports break it down easily.

## Student Progress Reports for Fish Lake Today's post features another fraction problem contributed by a middle school student. This one teaches equivalent fractions and common denominators.

## Part 2: Math Problems and Middle School Game Design Project One way to teach students fractions is to have them write their own problems and give the answer. Next, have them solve and discuss each other's problems. Play the Fish Lake game to get some ideas of fractions problems.

## Math Problems and Middle School Game Design Project: Part 1 To add fractions there are three simple steps: Step 1: Make sure the bottom numbers (the denominators) are the same. Step 2: Add the top numbers (the numerators), put that answer over the denominator. Step 3: Simplify the fraction (if needed) We believe that children learn from multiple examples in multiple situations. I’m sure you, oh […]

## Math Lesson – Adding like fractions (with a common denominator) Students often struggle with multi-step problems for a lot of reasons. In my experience, the most common one is they stop too soon. For example, in the first lesson below, the student may add up the fractions of the rice gathered by each of the two sisters and stop there. […]

## Adding and Subtracting fractions with a Common Denominator: Multi-step problems Is it back to school time already? Yes, it is! Are you ready? No, you are probably not. So, your friends here at 7 Generation Games want to lend a helping hand. To follow up our lesson plans on introducing fractions and teaching equivalent fractions, we want to talk about […]

## When does a fraction = 1? Another back-to-school lesson plan Equivalent fractions are different fractions that name the same number. The numerator and the denominator of a fraction must be multiplied by the same nonzero whole number in order to have equivalent fractions. The presentations and videos below provide multiple explanations and examples. Using Equivalent Fractions on a Number Line I really like this PPT […]

## Math Lesson – Equivalent fractions STANDARD: Understand a fraction a/b with a > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/b AAGH! It’s August and almost back to school time. Maybe you are that super-teacher who has everything ready. For the rest of you mere humans, who wish you could have a lesson plan together in just 10 minutes, have […]

## Introducing Fractions : Lesson Plan Seriously, there's more to teaching fractions than pizza. Fractions are the first abstract concept most students learn and they can struggle to understand the concept. So, here are 10 minutes of animated videos, with explanations, definitions and a range of examples.

## Teaching Fractions in 10 minutes You don’t want to think about math lesson planning – or anything else school related – for at least a month I understand math lesson planning is the last thing you want to think about right now. Whether you’ve just finished the school year or you have a few more […]
