For the next six weeks we will be focusing on the standard 3.NF.1 Fractions. This unit is following our geometry unit in which students were expected to know and recognize attributes of shapes and partition shapes into parts with equal areas. This was a perfect transitional standard to lead us into fractions.
The key concepts that will be addressed through this unit are:
- Understand that when partitioning a whole shape, number line, or a set into unit fractions, the intervals must be equal.
- Understand the importance of the whole of a fraction and identifying it.
- Understand that not all shapes can be divided the same way.
