Our Fraction Word Problems lesson plan reminds students they will use both fractions and the skills they need to solve word problems in real life. The steps for solving word problems and basic steps for working with fractions are also reviewed as part of the lesson. Real world application is the focus of all the sample problems included with the lesson; students are asked to create their own word problems based on real career paths they’re interested in. Students are also asked to solve a variety of fraction word problems on their own in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to solve real-world problems involving the four basic operations with fractions.
