This video addresses two Indiana Academic Standards for Math: Compute with positive fractions and positive decimals fluently using a standard algorithmic approach. (6.C.2)
Compute fluently with rational numbers using an algorithmic approach. (7.C.7) Math education consultant Ryan Flessner helps educators envision the teaching and assessment of these standards in Grades 6-7.
Building on concrete experiences, conceptual understandings, and strategies students learned in Grade 5, sixth and seventh graders extend their knowledge of multiplication and division as they work with the standard U.S. algorithms related to fractions, decimals, and other rational numbers.
It is important to note that this strand focuses on multiplication and division. For ideas related to addition and subtraction with decimals to hundredths, please see the “Adding and Subtracting Fluently” series.
Lessons for sixth and seventh graders should capitalize on prior understandings as standard U.S. algorithms are introduced. A premium must be placed on students’ understandings. Teaching rote procedures negates the habits of mind students have demonstrated in earlier grades. Connections between visual models used in the teaching of fractions and decimals should be made as students explore more abstract ideas in Grades 6 and 7. Assessments requiring the use of standard algorithms should also encourage students to employ other strategies in order to demonstrate depth of understanding. Educators should look for both correct answers and correct thinking in order to affirm that students can justify the mathematics involved with any strategies they use.
