You've got 60 spaces on a grid to create an amusement park, a house, a farm, or whatever you'd like. Divide it into seven pieces, order it by size, combine into two halves, and more in this fraction project.

When fractions take on a new denominator, it's as if they're wearing a disguise - same value, new look. So let's write a story about fraction equivalence starring a fraction who needs to fit in with a new group.

You only have six digits to form three fractions. Can you combine them to get to 0?

Which set of fractions would be the *trickiest* to order from least to greatest? Let's have a tournament!

What do you do with students who already *get* their fraction operations? Give them a contrived project about recipes or pizza slices? Make them solve annoyingly hard practice problems? Please. Here, we get students thinking in a whole new way, pondering *which has more power*, the numerator or denominator.

What does it *look like* to multiply fractions?

Have you ever wondered what it looks like to divide by a fraction, *man?*

What if we took a fraction apart, then took those pieces apart, then recombined them, and then *recombined those*, arriving back to the original fraction?

Can your students figure out how to add fractions by looking for a pattern?

What if you set the stage for students to discover how to multiply fractions?
