Module 6: Fraction Operations  Course Guide
Module Overview:
In this module students will learn about dividing with small dividends, dividing decimals and dealing with the remainder, and dividing by powers of 10. Students will learn about writing equivalent fractions, finding the common denominator when working with fractions, they will learn about greatest common factors, and lowest common denominators. Students will learn about adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators, adding mixed numbers with like denominators, adding and subtracting fractions with unlike denominators, adding mixed numbers with unlike denominators, and subtracting mixed numbers.

1  Small Dividend Division  In their Math notebook, have your student write the steps for how to divide with small dividends. 
2  Decimals as Remainders  In their Math notebook, have your student write out what they do if they have a remainder when dividing decimals. 
3  Dividing Decimals by Powers of 10  In their Math notebook, have your student write down which way and how many times you move the decimal when dividing a decimal by 10, 100, and 1,000. 
4  Equivalent Fractions  In their Math notebook, have your student explain what equivalent fractions are and some good models they can use to help them understand fractions. 
5  Common Denominators  In their Math notebook, have your student write the steps to find common denominators from this lesson. 
6  Greatest Common Factors  In their Math notebook, have your student explain the following: factor, prime factors, the simplest form of a fraction, and how to find the Greatest Common Factor. 
7  Lowest Common Denominator  In their Math notebook, have your student write the steps involved to find the LCM. 
8  Adding and Subtracting Fractions  In their Math notebook, have your student describe the steps involved in adding and subtracting fractions with like denominators and unlike denominators. 
9  Adding Mixed Numbers  In their Math notebook, have your student write the steps for adding mixed numbers with like and unlike denominators. 
10  Subtracting Mixed Numbers  In their Math notebook, have your student write down the steps involved in subtracting mixed numbers. 
Module Guiding Questions:
When a student starts a lesson ask them questions to check for prior knowledge and understanding and to review concepts being taught. At the end of the lesson ask the questions again to see if their answer changes.

Module Video Questions:
When a student watches a video take time to ask them questions about what they watched. Suggested questions for the videos in this module are listed here. Suggestion: Have the student watch the entire video first all the way through. Then have them watch the video a second time, as they watch it pause the video and ask the questions.

Module Suggested Read Aloud Books:
Take time to read to your student or have them read aloud to you. Read a different book each day. While reading the book point out concepts being taught. You may purchase these books or find them at your local library. Suggested things to discuss while reading the book:
 What is the main idea?
 What are three things new you learned?
 How does this book relate to what you are learning about?
