Explain how you know your answers are correct.**Same Parts, Different Wholes**Notebook • Will 1/2 of the area of a 5x12 rectangle be the same as 1/2 the area of a 4x6 rectangle? • What is 1/4 of the area of a 5x12 rectangle? What is 1/4 of a 4x6 rectangle? • What is 2/3 of the area of a 5x12 rectangle? What is 2/3 of the area of a 4x6 rectangle? 4 x 6 5 x 12**Fractions to Find on the 5 x 12 Rectangles**SAB Unit 6 page 11**Tuesday, November 19, 2013**It is our choices... that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities. J. K. Rowling**POTD**Ms. Mohler’s third graders visited the park nature center to see the tadpoles and frogs.

Explain how you know your answers are correct.**SAB Unit 6 page 22**____________ =1 ____________ =1 ____________ =1 ____________ =1 ____________ =1 ____________ =1 What are some ways that we can divide this rectangle to equal 1 whole? As we divide we will label each section.**Wednesday, November 20, 2013**Nobody ever did, or ever will, escape the consequences of his choices.-Alfred A. Montapert**POTD**Tanya and Lisa are playing a Fraction Card Game. • Tanya draws the fraction 3/4. • Lisa draws the fraction 7/8 . Explain who wins the round and how you know it.**Is this equation true? Show how you know.**1/2 + 2/6 = 5/6 What would happen if we added another ½?**Thursday, November 21, 2013**“The hardest choices in life aren't between what's right and what's wrong but between what's right and what's best.”**POTD**Judy and Greg are playing a Fraction Card Game. • Judy draws the fraction 3/4. • Greg draws the fraction 3/8 . Explain who wins the round and how you know it.**Write the fractions to show all the parts of this rectangle.**Then write an equation that shows how all the fractional parts add up to 1. ____________ =1**Determine if these fractions are more or less than1. Use**reasoning before you work it out. • 1/2 + 3/4 More or Less Answer _______ • 4/8 + 2/8 More or Less Answer _______ • 5/6 + 7/8 More or Less Answer _______**Friday, November 22, 2013**Be miserable. Or motivate yourself. Whatever has to be done, it's always your choice.-Wayne Dyer**POTD**Mrs. Meatball orders pizza cut into 8 slices. Her daughter eats 1/4 of the pizza.

How much of the bag did she have left? • Draw a rectangle and shade 3/4 Look at your rectangle. How could you show the 1/4 Helena gave to her brother? What’s the answer to the problem?
