#### Lego Math - Awesome Way To Teach Fractions - This Would Have Helped Me So Much As A Kid. I Always Struggled With Fractions!

#### A brilliant way to teach kids fractions. So many children (and adults for that matter) struggle with fractions. Here is an easy way to teach fractions using LEGO! STUPENDOUS iDEA

#### Using legos to teach fractions--- where was this idea when my kids were learning this? Would have made life all-around easier!

#### Teaching fractions can be easier if you start with something a child is familiar with, like LEGO bricks. This introductory lesson is only good for the simplest fractions fractions based on a total of eight pips, but those are the ones they'll be using the rest of their lives to calculate parts of dollars and gallons (in America, that is). Seems like a genius idea to me, but I've never had LEGO bricks. Is this something schools and parents have been doing all along? -via Geeks Are Sexy...

FRACTIONS: The Backward Zorro

#### Grade Math, Solving Fraction, Math Fractions, Backwards Zorro, Math Ideas, Teaching Fraction, School Math, Kid

#### Teaching fraction of a group. So easy for the kids to remember (Backwards Zorro) From: Think * Share * Teach: The Backwards Zorro

#### Think * Share * Teach: The Backwards Zorro. Cool way to show percents to struggling students in 6th grade. Gifted kids would enjoying coming up with the algorithm.

#### Using the "backwards Zorro" to solve fraction of a number problems. Where were these tricks when I needed them??

#### Solving Fractions using the Backwards Zorro - Starting at the bottom, draw a line from the 4 to the 24 (4 goes into 24 six times). Draw the line to the 3 (six times three is 18). Draw the top line and write the answer.

#### The Backwards Zorro -Helps kids learn how to determine the fraction of a group. Said to be a tried & true strategy. The Backwards Zorro! It's visual & fun to say & it really seemed to stick in the minds of kids. Here's how it works:Start at the bottom, draw a line from the 4 to the 24 (4 goes into 24 six times). Draw the line to the 3 (six times three is 18). Draw the top line & write the answer. Presto!

MATH: How to do Short Division

#### Math, Long Shorts, Division Shortcut, Division Long, Teaching Long Division, Division Tricks, Tutorial, Short Division, 5Th Grade

#### I was taught short division over 50 years ago in late elementary. I don't think it's taught much anymore. A few years ago I saw that Saxon math teaches it in it's special ed math textbooks. I've not seen it anywhere else though. I taught Clio short division last year when she was in fourth grade!

#### Short Division example: 1. 6 into 25 = 4 2. 1 left over, draw it in front of the 3 3. 6 into 13 = 2 4. 1 left over, draw it in front of the 2 5. 6 x 2 = 12, No remainder!

#### E is for Explore! Long Division vs. Short, with tutorial and examples (for GT)

#### Division Trick: Just carry to next place value, instead of bringing it down.

PROBLEMS: Give the child the answer and let them create the problem.

#### Grade Math, Word Problem, Math Journal, Classroom Math, Student, Teaching Math, Math Ideas, School Math

#### Math journal idea. Start with the answer. Students write an accompanying word problem. For my fourth graders, I would include stipulations such as, you must include multiplication, division, etc.

#### Great Math idea. Could use different problems created by students later in the year, too. Kids would love to see their problems being presented to the class.

#### Love this- I do it weekly! Give it a try- your students will amaze you:) Love this for math journals. Jeopardy style to decomposing numbers.

#### Love this- encouraging creativity from students solving math problems. Would be interesting to see how this could be implemented using a tangible interface like the Sifteo cubes.

#### Love the idea of having students make a math problem that fits the answer you give them...could be made more difficult for upper grades

VISUAL way to do a story problem with time

#### Grade Math, Students Find, Classroom Math, Teaching Math, Math Ideas, Time Backwards, Hour, Math Measurement, School Math

#### Another pinner said: This SO worked to help my students find elapsed time! It is the most compact strategy I have seen. We drew the N then labeled counter clockwise from top left: Start Time, Next Hour, End Time, Hour of End Time. Then we went back and filled in the elapsed minutes and hours. To cross over the AM/PM, you can use the double strategy, but my 5th graders were fine with one N.

#### Using the 'backwards N' technique to teach elapsed time gear visual for teaching math

#### Elapsed Time Backwards N Strategy. I struggled with this as a kid
