**1. Select five word problems from the pack. Draw fraction models to
**

help you solve each problem.

2. Explain your strategy for solving one problem in writing.

Example: Tom bought 2 kilograms of bananas and 1 kilograms of grapes. How many

kilograms of fruit did Tom buy in all?

Explanation: I needed to find the sum of 2 and 1 . I drew fraction models to represent

the problem and added the whole numbers, 2+1 = 3. I partitioned and into twelfths so

that the units were the same. Next, I added + = and 3 + = 3 .

Tom bought 3 kg of fruit.

= =

2 + 1 = 3

+ =

3 + = 3

1. Select five word problems from the pack. Solve each problem by

finding a common unit and then adding.

2. Explain your strategy for solving one problem in writing.

Example: A baker used 4 bags of flour baking cakes and 3 bags of flour baking cookies.

How much flour did he use in all?

4 + 3

= 7 +

= 7 +

= 7

= 8

Explanation: I needed to find the sum of 4 + 3 . I added the whole

numbers 4+3=7, then renamed and so that the units would be the

same. To do this I listed multiples of 2 and 5 and found that the lowest

common denominator was 10. 2: 2,4,6,8,10

5: 5,10

I renamed as ( x = and as ( x = ). Then I added

the fractions for a sum of 7 which is equal to 8 . The baker used 8

bags of flour.
