Give your students the opportunity to practice fractions with this fun interactive math activity! Children will become familiar with fractions as they determine what fraction of the shape is shaded, which shapes are divided into equal parts, and more. The math questions in this fourth-grade math activity are presented as multiple-choice questions, drag-and-drop questions, and fill-in-the-blank questions. When your students complete their math practice, they will have gained confidence and proficiency in identifying the fractions of shapes.
Boredom will certainly not be one of the obstacles your students face in this engaging math lesson! They will be challenged by a variety of questions to test their fraction knowledge. Children may be asked, "What fraction of the shape is shaded?" or "What fraction of the shape is purple?" Alternatively, they may be given a word problem, such as this one: "Three quarters of Sydney's birthday cake was eaten at her party. What fraction of the cake was not eaten?" All math questions in this lesson are accompanied by custom graphics which depict the scenario in question. Students will find the question equally challenging and entertaining.
This fourth-grade math lesson includes several important features that help students make the most out of their math practice session. A progress-tracker in the upper-right corner of the practice screen shows them how many questions they have answered so far in the lesson, while a score-tracker beneath that lets them know how many questions they have answered correctly. A speaker icon on the opposite side of the practice screen indicates the read-aloud feature, which is an excellent resource for ESL/ELL students and children who prefer auditory learning.
If students need a little help figuring out the fractions in their math lesson, they can click on the "Hint" button, which will show them a relevant pictorial or written clue to help them solve the problem. When students answer a question incorrectly, a detailed explanation page will appear to show them the correct answer, including a step-by-step tutorial for how to obtain it. In this way, students can progress through the lesson having learned from their mistakes.
