Show Fractional Values with a Line Plot Math Games

3 games

In this series of games, your students will learn to make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit. The Show Fractional Values with a Line Plot learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 5.MD.B.2 as written in the common core national math standards.

Concepts Covered

Reason that since there are b portions of 1/b, in 1 then there must be a x b portions of 1/b in a. Understand that dividing a whole number by a unit fraction determines how many of that unit fraction is in the whole number. Use visual fraction models to show and prove your reasoning.  Recognize that division of a whole number is the same as multiplying by a unit fraction. Given that dividing a whole number can be represented as a fraction, divide a unit fraction by a whole number.

Use visual fraction models to show the quotient. Dividing a unit fraction into more whole number parts means partitioning the denominator into smaller parts. Finding the equivalent fractions with common denominators does not change the value of either fraction. In order to add or subtract fractions with unlike denominators, you must find equivalent fractions with the same denominator. Create line plots with fraction measurements. Solve problems using data from line plots. Analyze data in a given line plot to answer questions.
