Ideas for home
- Finding common denominators is a key skill when working with fractions. Say two numbers less than 12 (like 3 and 5) and ask your child to find a common multiple. For example, the multiples of 3 are 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, and the multiples for 5 are 5, 10, 15. A common multiple for 3 and 5 is 15.
- Help your child develop flexibility in thinking about fractions by talking about equivalent fractions in everyday activities. If a pizza is cut into eight equal slices and your child eats two slices, ask them to describe how much they ate ( 2/8 or 1/4 of the pizza).
- Practice mental division problems at the grocery store. For example, for a six pack of juice drinks that cost $3.36, ask your child how much one drink would cost. Your child should think about each dollar as being 100 cents and respond, "Three hundred cents divided by six is 50 cents. Thirty-six cents divided by six is six cents. So one drink costs 56 cents."
- Create pairs of cards that have a division expression on one card and the matching quotient, or answer, on the other card. Use these cards to play games like Memory.
