Mrs. Linse and I made this video to demonstrate to the boys and girls how to solve more challenging fractions problems when the problem doesn't come right out and tell you how many items you're working with.
This video helps kids to learn how to solve problems such as:
There are some babies.
1/2 are happy.
3/12 are mad.
The rest are sleeping.
How many babies are sleeping?
There are four quick steps outlined in the video that students can use to solve these kinds of problems.
Our quizzes over the next few days focus on this type of problem. Memorizing doubles facts up to 11+11 will also be an asset.
