Divide Fractions with Visual Models Included - Printable
Use visual models along with the standard algorithm to quickly and effectively teach your students how to divide fractions with this comprehensive resource pack.
Using visual models, students will have a more hands-on approach to “see” what it looks like when dividing unit fractions by whole numbers and dividing whole numbers by unit fractions in addition to using the standard algorithm. It’s great for kinesthetic learners as well as students that may struggle with memorizing algorithms.
A mini-lesson on dividing fractions by fractions (6th grade standard 6.NS.1) is also provided and can be used with students who quickly master dividing with unit fractions. Great for differentiation!
This resource is complete, concise, and easy to follow with a clear format. It is low-prep and easy to assign to a sub. If your students are struggling with fraction operations, this resource is for you!
Standards: 5.NF.7, 5.NF.7a, 5.NF.7b, 5.NF.7c, 6.NS.1
How Can You Use This?
Introduce each skill with the detailed set of notes and sample problems. I suggest doing this in a whole group setting and pulling the PDF up on a Smartboard so students can annotate over the models.
Gradually release students to practice independently using the practice pages. Check for understanding and mastery after teaching each skill using the exit tickets.
When all skills have been taught, assess with the final quiz when you feel students are ready.
