About Course

Shapes from Shapes with Gavin Blackshear:

Examine math models, and find the fraction for each piece. Make a shape made out of smaller equal size pieces.

Next Generation Standards Covered

CCSS.Math.Content.3.G.A.2 Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole. For example, partition a shape into four parts with equal areas, and describe the area of each part as 1/4 of the area of the shape.

Guiding ideasShapes from Shapes with Gavin Blackshear

  1. The Big Idea. “Fractions can be made out of large shapes that are made out of smaller shapes”

Debrief Questions

  1. The teacher will facilitate a discussion around the peer review questions.

Student Activities Shapes from Shapes with Gavin Blackshear

  1. Students will teleport to the Exhibition Area where they will be given a camera and portfolio. The students will look at math models and find the fraction of each piece
  2. Students will be teleported to the Stage and will be given either four sets of six blocks or six sets of four. They will use the blocks and build a structure and find the fraction for each piece.

Performance expectations

  1. The student was able to examine and label math models to find the fraction of parts to a whole.
  2. The student was able to examine a math model and determine if it is made out of equal pieces.
  3. The student was able to create a math model that shows a shape made out of equal pieces.
  4.  The student was able to examine a peer’s math model and recreate it using different size pieces.
  5.  The student was able to explain how the math model is parts to a whole and what a unit fraction is and connect it with the Big Idea.
  6. The student was able to explain other mathematical connections such as factors, number families, or equivalent fractions.
