Nacho and Bob - Fractions - NO PREP Self-directed Learning with Answers
It is designed for self-paced learning, for home schooling, for gifted and talented students needing extension work or for struggling students needing a review that they can work through at their own pace.
It begins with fraction basics, through simplifying fractions, converting mixed fractions and improper fractions, addition and subtraction of fractions as well as multiplication and division of fractions.
The answers are provided - you can either take them out to mark your students' progress or leave it to them to self- assess.
In addition, a number of fraction resources are included - a table of basic fractions, a multiplication grid, a pizza to cut and experiment with as well as chocolate cake graphics showing different fractions. This adds a tactile element to the chapter.
The chapter features two fun characters - Nacho and Bob - who guide the students through the exercises, make suggestions and make jokes. The idea is to make learning fun!
There are practice tables at the end of each section. These guide students through the different processes step by step, with many examples given.
The chapter is provided as a pdf for ease of printing. You may like to laminate the resources for reuse and keep a few copies in plastic sleeves to hand out as needed.
This is available for only $5 for a limited time at https://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Nacho-and-Bob-Fractions-NO-PREP-Self-directed-Learning-with-Answers-2059561
