**Unit 6: ****Fraction Computation**

**Unit 6:**

**Fraction Computation**

This unit will allow students to apply and extend their previous understandings of operations on whole numbers to fractions.

Below I have included the several PDF files that are used in class to help present the material. The first file is the whole PDF file of what is taught in class. The second file is the specific slides and information that students add to their Math Notebooks. The third PDF file is the classwork, homework, and unit review with the

**Unit Objectives:***Students will use models to represent mixed numbers and improper fractions.*

*Students will correctly add and subtract fractions with like denominators. They will also correctly multiply fractions by whole numbers.*

**Unit Essential Questions:**- How can we visually represent and verify fractional computation?

**Unit Enduring Understandings:**- One representation may sometimes be more helpful than another; and, used together, multiple representations give a fuller understanding of a problem.
- A quantity can be represented numerically in various ways. Problem solving depends on wise choices.

**Unit Topics:**- Adding Fractions with Like Denominators
- Adding Mixed Numbers with Common Denominators
- Subtracting Fractions with Common Denominators
- Subtracting Mixed Numbers with Common Denominators
- Multiplying Fractions and Whole Numbers
