Fractions: Adding and Subtracting Fractions With Denominators!

Introduction

Hello, students! Welcome to class; today we will be learning fractions. I hope that everyone is excited to learn about fractions. Our major objective will be to learn how to add and subtract fractions with denominators. We may encounter issues that put your guys's ability to use their newly acquired understanding of fractions in a practical settings to the test and deepen their understanding of the fractions to the test. Understanding fractions is super important to everyday life. So let’s begin class!

Standard Addressed: CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.NF.A.1

Task

To complete the task, cooking will be necessary. Students will have to properly measure and combine ingredients in fractional quantity recipes. The students will have to then select a dinner, get the items ready, and get started while keeping a careful eye on the fractions that make up the dish. This hands-on experience will reinforce their understanding of fractions. 

Process

Once the students select a dinner recipe that involves fractional quantities, they will need to gather all of the necessary ingredients. Then, each component needs to be measured carefully. The fractional measurements specified in the recipe must be strictly followed when the students are measuring each component. Then, students have to make sure the ingredients are mixed properly and must pay close attention to the fractions involved. Students will not only improve their understanding of fractions, but they will also learn how they are used in everyday situations. In this case they are learning how it could be used in everyday situations related to cooking. This will help the students better understand fractions in an engaging way. 

Evaluation

Todays evaluation will focus on how accurately each of you uses fractional quantities when measuring and blending ingredients within the recipes. My major focus will be on the students application of the fraction addition and subtraction abilities that have been discussed. It is crucial to comprehend the proportions that go into each ingredient in the meal in addition to following the directions. The practical application of these fractions will reveal how much of the lesson the students retained. 

Conclusion

Overall, students will learn about fractions. Not only will they learn about fractions, but the students will learn how to add and subtract fractions with denominators. Math is integrated into the kitchen where students spend time mixing, measuring, etc. Then they will become successful when it comes to learning about fractions. Fractions are used in everyday life skills. When cooking, students mix, measure, and bake. Fractions come handy in the kitchen as well as the classroom. Now that students know how to add and subtract fractions with denominators, cooking and classwork will be a breeze and come easy to them.
