M3 MAKING MATH MAGIC

slide4

We believe……

  • that all students can and should learn math!
  • that if children like math and feel successful at math - they will learn math!
  • there are 3 basic stages that children need to go
  • through when learning math:
  • –Stage 1: Using Manipulatives
  • –Stage 2: Developing a Mental Image
  • –Stage 3: Using Symbols

Making Math Magic

in short
In short….

Students can be more successful when they have plenty of opportunities to:

  • Build it! Concrete
  • Draw it! Mental Image
  • Write it! Symbolic

SAY IT! throughout

Making Math Magic

slide6

We believe……

that the HOW in math instruction

is as important

as the WHAT,

if not more so…

Making Math Magic

review the standards for mathematical practice

Review the Standards for Mathematical Practice:

Make sense of problems and

persevere in solving them

Reason abstractly and quantitatively

(contextualize and decontextualize)

Construct viable arguments and

critique the reasoning of others

standards for mathematical practice

Standards for Mathematical Practice:

Model with mathematics

Use appropriate tools strategically

Attend to precision

Look for and make use of structure

Look for and express regularity in

repeated reasoning

slide9

If we pay particular attention to the learning stages mentioned earlier, which Standards for Math Practice would/could be naturally addressed?

With your talking partner discuss:

  • Build it!
  • Draw it!
  • Write it!

Say It!

Throughout

Making Math Magic

big rocks
Big Rocks:
  • Understand the relationship between the names (fraction, decimal, percent)
  • Move freely between the “part”, the “name”, and the “whole”
  • Explore Benchmark numbers to understand size/location, and comparisons.

Making Math Magic

slide11

Why do middle school and high school students still struggle with fractions, decimals, and per cents?

Our goal is to help students that struggle make sense of rational numbers!

Making Math Magic

slide12

Are there some fractions, decimals, per cents that are more prevalent in real life?

How long has it been since you had to deal with 9.0768% in real life????

Making Math Magic

slide13

Let’s concentrate on those numbers as we revisit to develop understanding.

Halves, fourths, eighths

Thirds, sixths

Tenths

Making Math Magic

slide14

We are going to start with percents and we are going to start with 50%.

WHY?????

Pre-assessment

Write down (or draw) some things that you know

about 50%.

Making Math Magic

slide16

Shade 50% of your paper strip.

  • Compare your 50% with your talking partner.
  • Did you agree?
  • How do you know you are correct?
  • If I wanted to describe what I shaded with a common fraction, what fraction did I shade?

Making Math Magic

slide17

Use a number line and mark where 50% would belong.

0% 100%

Let’s compare the strip model and the number line model.

Making Math Magic

linear model vs area model
Linear Model vs Area Model

0% 50% 100%

slide19

Let’s look at another model.

Use one of the 4” squares to shade 50%

You will also need this Transparency Grid Model

Making Math Magic

equivalence
Equivalence

If this entire square represents my unit (my 1), what is the name for each of my inside pieces?

What is my shaded part called?

Making Math Magic

How do I write that as a fraction?

How do I write that as a decimal?

If this entire square represents my unit (my 1), what is the name for each piece?

What would be the name for my shaded part?

How do I write this as a decimal?

slide24

Let’s look at all of the ways we have represented our 50%:

50%, , , 0.5, , and 0.50

These are all equivalent and can be used interchangeably.

Let’s look at other area or linear models..

Fraction Circles

Fraction Rectangles

Cuisenaire Rods

Making Math Magic

slide26

At your table, each person use a different model to show a 50% (etc.) model..

Fraction Circles

Cuisenaire Rods

slide27

Introducing the discrete or set model

  • Use either a paper circle or a paper square to fold and shade 50%.
  • If you have 6 beans, how can you
  • place them on your model to be “fair”?
  • What is 50% of 6?

Making Math Magic

slide28

Reverse the process…..

  • If 4 represents 50% of a number, what is the number?
  • 50% of what number is 4?

Making Math Magic

slide29

Using the number line to solve problems

Some people prefer one number line

0 ? 24

0% 50% 100%

Some people prefer two number lines

0% 50% 100%

0 ? 24

Making Math Magic

slide30

Using the double number line ….

Some people prefer the two number lines put together

0 ? 24

0% 50% 100%

Making Math Magic

slide31

Practicing with the models

  • Choose a model to show and solve:
  • 50% of what number is 18?
  • What is 0.5 of 32?
  • What fraction of 30 is 15?
  • Twenty-one is 0.50 of what number?

Making Math Magic

slide32

Moving on to Fourths……

  • Why would we do fourths next?
  • Start back with folding the strips.
  • Have the students use an 8.5 paper strip and find half. Ask them to leave this folded and fold in half again. Have them predict how many parts they will have.
  • How should we label these if I want to use fractions?

slide33

Fourths……

Use one of the 8.5” number lines to label fourths . They can used their folded strip as a reference or they can fold the number line.

Discuss the difference in the labels.

Making Math Magic

slide34

Fourths……

Ask them to use other paper strips and number lines to label using percents.

You may have to lead them to the discovery of “If the whole strip is 100%, then one section is 25%”.

25%

25%

0% 25% 50% 75% 100%

Again, discuss the difference in the labels.

Making Math Magic

slide35

Fourths….

Because students may struggle with finding half of 0.5, we are going to use the 4” square and the grid model before we ask them to do the decimal version of the number line.

Making Math Magic

slide36

Let’s look at another model.

Use one of the 4” squares to shade

25% or one-fourth.

You will also need this Transparency Grid Model

Let’s do some math…..

Find an area model for fourths or fold one of the circles or squares into fourths.

What is ¼ of 12?

What is ¾ of 12?

25% of some number is 5, what is the number?

75% of some number is 12, what is the number?

Try these……..

25% of what number is 7?

What is 0.5 x 64?

¾ of what number is 21?

What per cent of 40 is 30?

Making Math Magic

slide45

We are debating on doing “eighths” here or moving to thirds and coming back to eighths later.

THOUGHTS?????

Making Math Magic

slide46

Thirds……..

Because of the fractions involved in thirds when they are written as a decimal and as a percent, we decided to approach them using the grid model first.
