Instructional Ideas

  • Have stretch paper available for pupils to work each problem out, encourage them to use their notes as needed 
  • Send the link home for practice, direct learners to answer the discussion question on paper or a blog post 
  • Have the link open on a set of computers, invite participants to complete the interactive as a May Do activity when they finish tasks early 
Classroom Considerations

  • Remind learners to reset the tool between problems 
  • Create a free CK-12 account prior to assigning the interactive 
  • Class members should be familiar with adding mixed numbers and reducing fractions 
Pros

  • Hints and additional information are provided on each question slide 
  • Correct answers appear after participants choose their response 
Cons

  • The tool does not split the fraction circle into equal parts or change whole numbers to match those that are on each question
