Problem-solving using data from dot plots using fractions.
This activity uses hat sizes and foot length in problem-solving, operations with fractions, and reading data from dot plots.
8 problems including data tables and a recording sheet, a mini-projects, plus a link to the original data.
Use in small groups, during guided math, during tutoring or intervention, or in centers.
This activity includes clear and concise teacher directions, problems and a recording sheet, teacher examples, and conversation starters that give students what they need to have meaningful academic discussions.

Add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators (including mixed numbers) by replacing given fractions with equivalent fractions in such a way as to produce an equivalent sum or difference of fractions with like denominators. For example, 2/3 + 5...
Solve word problems involving addition and subtraction of fractions referring to the same whole, including cases of unlike denominators, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem. Use benchmark fractions and number s...
Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction or whole number by a fraction.
Solve real world problems involving multiplication of fractions and mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.
Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions.
Make a line plot to display a data set of measurements in fractions of a unit (1/2, 1/4, 1/8). Use operations on fractions for this grade to solve problems involving information presented in line plots. For example, given different measurements of li...
