4 Standards and Learning Objectives
Grade 3 -- Chapter 9: Fractions Students will focus on understanding, writing, and comparing fractions and mixed numbers. 3rd Grade Standards: 3N3 Identify and represent fractions (between 0 and 1 with denominators through 10) as parts of unit wholes and parts of groups. Model and represent a mixed number (with denominator 2, 3, or 4) as a whole number and a fraction, e.g., 1 2/3, 3 ½. 3N4 Locate on the number line and compare fractions (between 0 and 1 with denominators 2,3, or4, e.g., 2/3). 3N8 Select and use appropriate operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division to solve problems, including money). 3N13 Use concrete objects and visual models to add and subtract (only when the answer is greater than or equal to zero) common fractions (halves, thirds, fourths, sixths, and eighths) with like denominators. Chapter 9 Learning Objectives: 9-1: Identify regions that have been divided into equal-sized parts, and divide regions into equal-sized parts. 9-2: Identify and draw fractional parts of regions. 9-3: Find equivalent fractions using models such as fraction strips. 9-4: Compare and order fractions. 9-5: Estimate fractional parts of regions. 9-6: Identify and locate fractions on a number line. 9-7: Identify fractional parts of sets or groups and divide sets to show fractional parts. 9-8: Find the number of objects in a fractional part of a set where the numerator is 1.

7 JEOPARDY RULES All questions are from the FRACTION unit.
Each team will take turns answering questions. If a team answers incorrectly, the next team gets the chance to answer (this is up to the teacher). Team members will collaborate together and take turns answering. The team answering has approximately 30 seconds to answer, subject to the judge. To enter the Team’s Score click on the SCORE box to return to the Scoreboard. Enter the score into the black box on each player’s podium and click Round 1 to return to the Jeopardy game board. The teacher is the final authority on all matters and has the power to add or remove points at will!
