Decomposing Fractions

We have begun our fractions unit, and one of the first skills we are learning about is how to decompose a fraction.  Until recently, “decompose” was a word that I applied to science–not math!  “Decompose” means to break down or break apart into smaller parts, and I’ve learned that we can apply that word in math, too!  Parents–we did learn this in school, BUT–we just didn’t use the same vocabulary.  Below are a couple of sites that provide the students with practice decomposing fractions.  The Khan Academy and Nearpod sites have videos included in case the students (or the parents) want to know more about the skill.  🙂  Just click on the picture and that will take you directly to the practice.

Screen Shot 2016-01-06 at 7.09.34 PM It is extremely important for 4th grade students to be fluent with their multiplication facts.  Students may use the XtraMath program to help improve their multiplication and division fact fluency.  We try to work on this every day in class, but it may also be done at home.
