Swift Foxes Fix Fractions and Decimals

Swift Foxes Fix Fractions and Decimals


Sometimes, it's hard to fix fractions and decimals because they are so small (and fall apart so fast!), so we have to employ swift foxes. The swift fox is the smallest of the wild dogs in North America (about the size of a domestic cat) and they can run up to 37 mph (60 kph). Time to fix some fractions and decimals, and be quick about it, too!


Through in-class activities and independent practice, students will:

  • Add and subtract positive and negative decimal numbers on a number line using their own strategies
  • Gain fluency with addition of rational numbers by choosing two numbers to sum to a target value
  • Round numbers to the ones and tenths place and compare rational numbers
