## Description

This 5-day project-based math resource applies math concepts in a real-world scenario to teach students about **fractions, including writing fractions, drawing fractions, and partitioning shapes into fractions**. In this** 5-day unit**, students will learn about fractions and then use that understanding to create a menu of donuts that are composed of fractional parts. This fraction math project is engaging and authentic. Plus, it’s available as both a digital and print resource.

This project-based math resource covers concepts of fractions and is **aligned with the following 3rd Grade Math Common Core State Standards:**

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.NF.A.1

- Understand a fraction 1/
*b*¬†as the quantity formed by 1 part when a whole is partitioned into¬†*b*¬†equal parts; understand a fraction¬†*a*/*b*¬†as the quantity formed by¬†*a*¬†parts of size 1/*b*.

CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.3.G.A.2

- Partition shapes into parts with equal areas. Express the area of each part as a unit fraction of the whole.¬†
*For example, partition a shape into 4 parts with equal area, and describe the area of each part as 1/4 of the area of the shape*.

**This resource is available in both Printable & Digital Google Slides versions.**

**What’s included in this resource:**

**Background Knowledge:**Students will brainstorm ways that they can approach the driving question.**Fraction Introduction:**Students will learn what a fraction is and learn that the parts of a fraction need to be partitioned equally.**Understanding Numerator & Denominator:**Students will learn what the numerator and denominator represent in a fraction. The students will apply this and shade in fraction models to match fractions in numerical form.**Understanding Partitioning:**Students will learn how to partition circles, rectangles, and squares. The students will use this new learning to create donuts that are partitioned into equal parts.**Designing a Menu:**Students will use what they have learned about fractions to design a menu of donuts with two or more flavors per donut.**Wrap Up:**Students will plan and review the donuts that they created for the menu and review fraction vocabulary.
