ASSESSMENT STRATEGIES

Pre-assessment: Check student's understanding before the lesson. "All of our fractions so far have involved our numerator being smaller than our denominator. We have had a smaller piece of a whole. What happens when our numerator is larger than our denominator? Give me a thumbs up if you think you know what will happen or a thumbs down if you're not sure." Or something like that.

Assessment During the Lesson: Keep your eyes open while you teach and while the students practice with the manipulatives. Once the students feel comfortable grouping the manipulative into whole numbers and remaining fractions give them a short worksheet to assess their ability.

Assessment After the Lesson: Once the students have completed the lesson give them some practice work to take home.
