In class we practiced working these problems on the smart board using the AirSketch app. As we got to the mixed number problems students were showing signs of a struggle with regrouping. 

To practice regrouping we completed this worksheet

I am not requiring students to diagram the regrouping. We did this to help our understanding. By the end of the worksheet most students were seeing the short cut.
  1. Subtract 1 from the whole number
  2. Add the numerator and denominator
  3. Keep the same denominator
Today I used this worksheet to determine if students needed homework. I am happy to say NOT ONE STUDENT HAD HOMEWORK TONIGHT!!!!!!!
