Fractions 1 is a Notebooking Central booklet featured in our Topic Investigations series. The Notebook Foldables found in a Topic Investigation title are based on content standards that help students develop tested skills or achieve deeper understanding of the most important ideas associated with the topic. Instructional strategies that encourage critical thinking, self-questioning, observing, predicting, comparing, and analyzing graphics are also featured. Topics in this introduction to fractions include: wholes and halves; thirds; fourths; fifths; sixths; eighths; tenths; equivalent fractions; inequalities; mixed numbers; and composing and decomposing fractions--please see Table of Contents for complete list of topics. Further study of elementary fractions can be found in Fractions 2.
The front tabs of Topic Foldables have memorable main ideas and graphics that students can underline, highlight, and enhance in ways that will individualize them. Students interact under the tabs by taking notes, summarizing, describing, questioning, explaining, sequencing, defining, diagramming, listing, and recording opinions, observations, or data. Notebook Foldables should generate meaningful discussions and debates that lead to student-generated questions, conclusions, and/or concerns that can be researched.
The Notebook Foldables in this booklet are not designed to serve as a scope and sequence, but rather to complement and extend existing curricula. Pick and choose the templates that work for you, or create your own using Dinah Zike's Notebook Foldables for Spirals, Binders, and Composition Books, with its companion CD.
