Fraction Interactions

by  Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum

It's the fraction game show! Students will find out how much they know about fractions as they work together to survive three rounds while constructing, observing, and dancing to solve math problems. Fractions can be fun! The materials for this program will be emailed.

Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum

Ann Arbor, MI
United States

The Ann Arbor Hands-On Museum provides an opportunity for people of all ages to discover and enjoy the wonder of science, math and technology in an interactive environment that promotes science literacy through experimentation, exploration, and education. Our distance learning programs are as interactive and hands-on as a visit to our museum! All programs include a kit of materials that includes everything students need to engage with our educators*

MISSION: Creating moments of discovery that inspire curiosity, exploration, and respect for STEM and the natural world. 

VISION: A world where curiosity today leads to more purposeful lives tomorrow.

Standards Alignment

National Standards

Understand numbers, ways of representing numbers, relationships among numbers, and number systems

Use mathematical models to represent and understand quantitative relationships

State Standards

N.ME.03.16 Understand that fractions may represent a portion of a whole unit that has been
partitioned into parts of equal area or length; use the terms "numerator" and "denominator."
N.ME.03.19 Understand that any fraction can be written as a sum of unit fractions, e.g. 1/4 can be written 1/4+1/4+1/4
N.ME.04.20 Understand fractions as parts of a set of objects
N.MR.04.23 Understand the relationships among halves, fourths, and eighths and among
thirds, sixths, and twelfths.
N.MR.04.26 Compare and order up to three fractions with denominators 2, 4, and 8, and 3, 6,
and 12, including improper fractions and mixed numbers.
N.MR.04.27 Add and subtract fractions less than 1 with denominators through 12 and/or 100,
in cases where the denominators are equal or when one denominator is a multiple of the other.
N.MR.04.28 Solve contextual problems involving sums and differences for fractions where one
denominator is a multiple of the other (denominators 2 through 12, and 100).
N.MR.04.30 Multiply fractions by whole numbers, using repeated addition and area or array
N.ME.05.10 Understand a fraction as a statement of division, using simple fractions and pictures to represent.
N.ME.05.11 Given two fractions, express them as fractions with a common denominator, but not necessarily a least common denominator; use denominators less than 12 or factors of 100.
N.ME.05.12 Find the product of two unit fractions with small denominators using an area model.
N.ME.05.13 Divide a fraction by a whole number and a whole number by a fraction, using simple unit fractions.
N.FL.05.14 Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators through 12 and/or 100, using the common denominator that is a product of the denominators of the 2 fractions
