### THE FRACTION SHUFFLE

This video is just to help you get better working with fractions with unlike denominators.

## Monday, March 12, 2012

### BONUS

1. COLOR EACH PIECE IF YOU WANT
2. CUT OUT ALL THE PIECES
3. USE ALL THE PIECES TO MAKE 2 DIFFERENT SQUARES (YOU CANNOT USE PIECE F AS A SQUARE ALONE)
4. HINT: 1 PIECE WILL HAVE TO BE COMPLETELY TURNED OVER.
5. GLUE YOUR PIECES TO A SHEET OF PAPER TO BE TURNED IN.

Students are creating Quadrilateral Venn Diagrams
• complete the Venn Diagram by labeling each circle (parallelogram, rectangle, square, rhombus, trapezoid)
• color all the pieces
• cut out the pieces
• glue them into their correct location
•  if you are having trouble find another example of the venn diagram in  your math book on page 442 or 443
• HOMEWORK - complete page 444 1-23
