Week 2: Whole to part relationships: Applying to problem solving.
The student will explore how to get multiple wholes to be broken into equivalent piecesthrough the use of Least Common Multiples, and apply fractions to basic problem solving.
Students will connect LCM to being a faster way to cut wholes into equal piecesIf one whole is cut into 3 pieces and another whole is split into 4 equal pieces, we cannotcompare them until all the pieces are the same size. Suggest some ways we can make allthe pieces the same size. Use the illustration to help.Students will explore how to find Least Common Multiple.What are multiple?
Multiple are products of one specific number when multiplied with other numbers.
How do you find the multiples of a number?
By multiplying the same constant number by each consecutive number starting with 1.
Example: The multiples of 3 are3 3 3 3 3 3 3 3x 1x 2x 3x 4x 5x 6x 7x 83 6 9 1215182124
