Find the equivalent fraction with denominators that are multiples of 10.

#### Essential Understandings

Concrete:

• Use base ten manipulatives to model 1/10 is the same as 10/100 by laying a rod on a flat.
• Use base ten manipulatives to model 2/10 is the same as 20/100 by laying a rod on a flat.
• Use base ten manipulatives to model 3/10 is the same as 30/100 by laying a rod on a flat, etc.
Representation:
• Understand the following vocabulary: equivalent fraction, tenths, and hundredths.
• Use visual representation of a flat to model 1/10 is the same as 10/100 by shading in the fraction of the flat.
• Use visual representation of a flat to model 2/10 is the same as 2/100 by shading in the fraction on a flat.
• Use visual representation of a flat to model 3/10 is the same as 30/100 by shading in the fraction on a flat, etc.

 Number: MAFS.4.NF.3.AP.5a Category: Access Points Date Adopted or Revised: 06/14 Cluster: Understand decimal notation for fractions, and compare decimal fractions. (Major Cluster) :  Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.

 Name Description MAFS.4.NF.3.5: Express a fraction with denominator 10 as an equivalent fraction with denominator 100, and use this technique to add two fractions with respective denominators 10 and 100. For example, express 3/10 as 30/100, and add 3/10 + 4/100 = 34/100.
