Parts of a Set - Variety

The Parts of a Set – Variety activity is based upon the IntelliMathics 3® Parts of a Set template. In this activity children are presented with ten problems, each with a variety of items and then asked a question about part of this group of items. The question requires them to build a fraction that corresponds to the correct answer.

As an example, six items may be presented including a pair of boots, a pair of socks, a radio, a part of shorts, a blackbird and a computer. The question is then asked what fraction of these items are worn on your feet. The child then needs to count the number of items and increase the denominator within the fraction bar to six and then in turn increase the numerator to two to reflect the correct number of items that may be worn on your feet.

The activity has built in self-checking so that children can correct their own work. Behind the scenes we are tracking all of their answers and a corresponding report is automatically produced if you have a copy of IntelliMatics 3®

Applications needed: IntelliTools Classroom Suite ®, IntelliTools Classroom Suite Player®, or IntelliMathics 3®.
Curriculum area: Math.
Level: Grades 3-5 and Middle/High School.
