Fractions & Decimals Overview
In this unit, students work with a variety of tools, including folded paper strips, egg cartons, geoboards, number lines, and base ten pieces, to model, read, write, compare, order, compose, and decompose fractions and decimals. Their investigations and explorations range from the purely mathematical—the relationship between fifths and decimals, for example—to applied, as they determine a strategy to figure out how many candy bars the fourth grade teacher will have to buy if she plans to give an undefined number of students three-quarters of a bar each.
In this unit, students will build on their knowledge of energy and differentiate among forms of energy, including mechanical, sound, electrical, light, and heat/thermal. Students will design an experiment to test the effect of force on an object by pushing or pulling, gravity, friction or magnetism. They will demonstrate that electricity travels in a closed path by creating an electrical circuit.
