APPLICATION PROBLEM
• Mr. Hopkins has a 1 meter wire he is using
to make clocks. Each fourth meter is
marked off with 5 smaller equal lengths. If
Mr. Hopkins bends the wire at &frac34; meter,
what fraction of the marks is that?
1/3 + 1/3
• Draw a number line and label it at the end points as zero and 1.
• Label your number line with thirds.
• Show one third plus one third with arrows.
• Talk to your shoulder partner and discuss how you can express this as a
multiplication problem and as an addition sentence.
3/8 + 3/8 + 1/8
• Draw a number line and mark the end points as zero and one.
• Between zero and one, estimate to make 8 parts of equal length. Only label
what is necessary to show 3 eighths.
• Talk to your shoulder partner and discuss how this as a multiplication
equation and as an addition equation.
