The WebQuest I have created is established as an interactive and engaging unit of study for Year 5 students to assist them in learning fractions and decimals. This WebQuest will enable the students to establish and applying new knowledge about this area of study in real world scenarios. Notably, the students should have extensive knowledge of the fact that any information learned in class can be applied to real life, such as when determining the right ingredients when baking, and is fundamental towards an essential living.
This WebQuest is composed of 4 lessons which are not only fun but also interactive. Each lesson is unique, and hence has a set of instructions focused on guiding the learners about what is expected. Subsequently, the learners are required to complete a set of challenges focused on enhancing their mathematical skills.
Year 5 Curriculum Outcomes (Fractions and Decimals)
This WebQuest is designed to meet the requirements of the Australian Curriculum Outcomes for Year 5 learners as outlined below.
- Compare and order common unit fractions and locate and represent them on a number line (ACMNA102)
- Investigate strategies to solve problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions with the same denominator(ACMNA 103)
- Recognise that the place value system can be extended beyond hundredths (ACMNA 104
- Compare, order and represent decimals (ACMNA105)
The chosen activities will achieve the desired learning outcomes by enhancing the mathematical skills of the learners in specific areas involving the manipulation of fractions and decimals.
