Lego is great both for ambitious projects and lazy jokes about foot injury. But one insidious teacher is using it to teach math.
FRACTIONS: The Backward Zorro
Classroom Idea, Solving Fraction, Solve Fraction, Teaching Math, Backwards Zorro, Math Ideas, Teaching Fraction, Fraction Trick
This is a great way to teach fractions. It is called the backwards zorro. The students are suppose to draw a line from the bottom number, 4, to the 24. They will find out how many 4 goes into 24 (6 times). They then draw a line from 24 to the 3. They will do 3 times 6 which equals 18. They will draw a line off of the 3 and write 18. This way students were able to find out that 3/4 of 24 was 18.
Are you teaching your kiddos how to solve fraction of a group problems? The Backwards Zorro! It's visual and fun to say and it really seemed to stick in the minds of the kiddos.
The Backwards Zorro. Solving fraction of a group 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.
But I would say "How many 4s are in 24?" NOT how many times does 4 GO INTO 24. Numbers cannot GO INTO other numbers. Division is making piles, not disappearing. Are you teaching your kiddos how to solve fraction of a group problems? My coworker came up with a fabulous name for the tried and true strategy that we probably all use: The Backwards Zorro! It's visual and fun to say and it really seemed to stick in the minds of the kiddos. Here's how it works:

Elapsed Time Backwards N Strategy. Here is a file that contains 5 pictures  It is a strategy used to teach elapsed time.
Here's an interesting set of graphics with a strategy for teaching elapsed time. @Kyle Dawson Hastings
I don't know about you, but I know teaching elapsed time to third graders can be a nightmare! It is such an abstract concept to teach anyway  and then practicing it later is like pulling teeth! How about a few fun ways to teach it AND to practice it? First up is an awesome resource for teaching it! Check out the Watch It! Elapsed Time Clo...
Teaching 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.
Elapsed Time Backwards N Strategy. Here is a file that contains 5 pictures that Melissa, from The OC Blog Facebook Fan Page, sent to me to post for everyone to see. It is a strategy used to teach elapsed time. Thanks Melissa!

Love this math idea
Here I am!!!! Wow, the last few days have been crazzzzzzy around here. As I mentioned in my last post, I was asked to change from 5th grade Science to 5th grade Math and I have since been scurrying around trying to get my "stuff" together. First of all, I want to begin by saying I am LOVING teaching Math. It is like being reunited with an old friend......teacher friends that have walked into my class even notice the difference in my attitude and enthusiasm. Mental note, if you are feeling tired and weary.............change subjects or grades........mix it up a little, it will make a difference. I have accumulated (on Pinterest) a few Math foldables and ideas that I want to incorporate into my Math journals. I linked every pin to the original author or blog. So without further adieu: This is a great idea that allows the student to create a spinner in their journal. They can use this spinner for probability, fractions and possibly games. Time I love this method of teaching elapsed time. We were working on this today. Measurement Jenn at Beyond the Grades This is a simplified version of gallon man. We cover these types of skills questions all year through the daily use of Simple Solutions Math, if you have never heard of it you might want to check it out here. It is a wonderful workbook that reviews various skills that they have learned up to ( in our case) the 5th grade. They also have a version for Science and English. Love, love, love this resource. Mean, Median Mode and Range Sherrie at Middle School Math Rules Angle Measurement Order of Operations Please, Excuse, My Dear, Aunt Sally I love how this shows multiplication and division on the same step as well as addition and subtraction. These steps are often taught incorrectly. :( Be sure to follow these links to the original blog. There are many, many more journaling ideas. Blog On!

Butterfly fractions for teaching how to add and subtract fractions with unlike denominators.UKEduacation Experiment Site @ http://www.smartyoungthings.co.uk
Name: Butterfly Method Target Area: Adding and Subtracting Fractions Description: This is an algorithm for teaching addition and subtraction of fractions with unlike denominators. Rather than finding the least common denominator, students will just find a common denominator and need to simplify at the end. For students who struggle to understand the process of adding fractions, this is a good option.
