Lesson Topic: Tangrams and Fractions Grade level: 7
Students will be able to examine pieces of tangrams and discover its relationships to fractions of a whole.
There will be a warm up of 2 problems about parts of a whole on the board as a review and a prerequisite of the lesson. We will display our objective on the PowerPoint as they are doing the warm-up and read through it once every student has finished the warm-up. We will lead into the body of our lesson by telling the students that the warm-up will relate to the class assignment.
After allowing ample time for students to work on solving the tangram shape, we will regroup, asking students to stop what they are doing, and come together to compare their results. We will display the multimedia solution to the tangram so all students understand how the pieces fit together. To tie in our objective we will explain to the students how the two biggest pieces of the tangram make up fractional parts (¼ and ¼ which make up ½ the square).
For homework, students will have to finish finding the fractional parts of the tangram and have their solutions ready for the next class period. They also need to show how all of the fractional parts create a whole when added together.
