NEW and IMPROVED Division of Fractions

CC_BY-NC-SA

A NEW and IMROVED division of fractions activity designed to develop the...do I have to say it..."Keep Change Flip"...algorithm.  Includes student pages, teacher pages (with answers and description of the intended thinking) and a Smartpen pencast where I provide an overview/example of the intended thinking. Note that the pencast document comes in the form of a PDF - check out this for details as you need a PDF reader like Adobe Acrobat X in order to view the pencast. -http://www.livescribe.com/en-us/faq/online_help/Maps/Connect_Desktop/c_viewing-and-playing-a-pencast-pdf.html

Nana's Lemonade - Dan Meyer Three Act Task

CC_BY-NC-SA

In a brief video, students are confronted with the situation of a person squeezing a lemon slice into a small cup of water. Then a "big gulp" cup is placed next to the smaller, lemon filled cup. By asking the question, "How many lemon wedges do you need to add for the same lemony taste?" students will begin to experiment and mathematically determine the answer.
