Math in My World Challenge Brief

 

Welcome Students,

    It is so exciting to begin the year with students that I have taught before!  Some of you may have been in my 4th grade Language Arts class just a couple of years ago.  This year we will explore the challenges and adventures of Math together.

    Our first unit is all about equivalent fractions, decimals, and percents.  We will be making a lot of real world connections in math this year because everything you learn here is going to be used in your everyday life.  Let’s get started with our first unit.

 

How can you use equivalent fractions, decimals, and percents to solve real-world problems?

What are percentages?

By the time you solve this driving question, you should be able to prove the following the following statements.

     6.4e  I can represent ratios and percents with concrete models,

fractions, and decimals.

 

     6.4f I can represent benchmark fractions and percents such as 1%, 10%, 25%, 33 1/3%, and multiples of these values using 10 by 10 grids, strip

diagrams, number lines, and numbers.

 

    6.4g I can generate equivalent forms of fractions, decimals, and percents

using real−world problems, including problems that involve money.

Simplifying Fractions

    6.5b I can solve real−world problems to find the whole given a part and the percent, to find the part given the whole and the percent, and to find the percent given the part and the whole, including the use of concrete and pictorial models.

Finding the Percent of a Number

 

    6.5c I can use equivalent fractions, decimals, and percents to show equal parts of the same whole.
