              Calculating a Fraction of an Amount

              To calculate a fraction of an amount students begin to understand how the term 'of' in mathematics relates to multiplication.  Through a series of scaffolding examples students progress from calculating a 1/4 of an amount to 4/5.  The class then apply their learning to calculate proportions rather than quantities.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to calculate a fraction of an amount where the numerator is one.
              • Most students should be able to calculate a fraction of an amount with numerator greater than one.
              • Some students should be able to calculate a fraction of an amount when given a mixed number.
