Fearless Fractions – Crosswalk Coach for Teacher Workbook

This free companion to the Teacher and Student Workbooks show the alignment between each lesson with NCTM Focal Points, Common Core Standards, TEKS, and STAAR Reporting Categories.

Fearless Fractions

The Fearless Fractions curriculum was developed by two teachers. The lessons were designed to help students and teachers develop mathematical power with fractions, ratios, and proportions. The lessons use colorful manipulatives to help students gain a conceptual understanding of fractions, ratios, probability, proportions, and percentages. They will seamlessly transition from the concrete to the abstract when problem-solving over 100 real-life situations. The new Teacher Workbook also includes the review and test materials. These materials were designed for the busy elementary and middle school teacher.

The Teacher Workbook provides teachers with scripted lessons, daily lesson plans, and review and test materials that are aligned with the following standards:
*National Council of Teachers of Mathematics Standards
*Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills
*State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness
*Common Core State Standards
*College and Career Readiness Standards

The Student Workbook provides the practice pages that are aligned with the lessons in the Teacher Workbook. First, students gain understanding of the concepts in each lesson and then are provided opportunities to apply their knowledge to real-life situations.
