Pathfinders have been busy in math this month operating with fractions. Inquiry has driven our study as we have asked questions like: Why is it necessary to have a common denominator when you add or subtract fractions? Why is the product of multiplied fractions smaller than the factors? What is the relationship between division and multiplication of unit fractions?
Students are thinking, operating, asking more questions and collaborating as they work on their projects. Look for our Operations With Fractions Comic Books coming soon.
