L/O: Fractions S/C: Number Sequences
Whole Class input: Children will count up and down in a given fraction. They will continue to use visual representations to help them explore number sequences. They will also find missing fractions in a sequence and determine whether the sequence is increasing or decreasing and by how much.
Discuss what happens when we go over 1 6/6? What does the fraction become? Can we look at it in another way? Link to mixed numbers and improper fractions. 1 and 7/6 = 7 divided by 6 = 1 and 1/6. Add this to the other whole number and you have 2 and 1/6 which also is 13/6 as an improper fraction. Do other examples from the chart.
