Lesson 13

Objective: Students will be able to solve word problems with adding and subtracting fractions and mixed numbers.

Standards: 5.NF.1 & 5.NF.2

Assessment: teacher observation, homework, guided practice, sections quiz.

Activity:

Students will be placed into groups of four. If needed, the teacher should participate in a group.

There will be four “roles” in the group:
1. guess and check
2. draw a picture
3. work backward
4. write an equation (use a variable)

The groups will receive a packet of word problems. As the groups go through each word problem, they will rotate the roles, so that for each word problem, you will have four DIFFERENT ways of solving it. They must go through at least one full rotation.
