Fractions are beautiful

IMG_0409We put the “A” for art in STEAM when Ms. Kaldor and I teamed up to make fraction paper quilts. Students used squares of colorful paper and folded them into equal pieces. Then they made symmetrical designs, determined the denominator in their design, and wrote accurate equations with fractions that matched their pictures. We hope to make some of our designs into a real quilt using fabric. Wish us luck!IMG_0410
