Adding Fractions with Unlike Denominators
Rating

This resource from the National Library of Virtual Manipulatives shows students how to rename fractions to have a common denominator and then add them. It is appealing because it visually engages the students by showing them what happens to a unit (a rectangle is used here) as the denominator increases or decreases. As the denominator increases or decreases, the partitions are shown accordingly, and the effect on the numerator is shown as well. This is a convenient, visual way to show students how to manipulate fractions for adding.

How to use a different approach to teaching biological concepts using inquiry-based investigations for students to develop reasoning skills essential to the science practices used throughout their study of biology. A more student-directed, inquiry-based lab experience supports the AP Biology course revision and curricular requirements by providing opportunities for students to design plans for experiments, data collection, application of mathematical routines, and refinement of testable explanations and predictions. The investigations are organized under four big ideas entitled: (1) evolution, cellular processes; (2) energy and communication; (3) genetics and information transfer; and (4) interactions.
