Divide Fractions with Visual Models Included - Digital & Printable
Use visual models along with the standard algorithm to quickly and effectively teach your students how to divide fractions with this comprehensive digital and printable 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, comprehensive, and easy to follow with a clear format. It is low-prep, easy to assign to a sub, and contains engaging printable activities and digital versions for use with Google Classroom. If your students are struggling conceptually, 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 displaying the PDF or pulling the slides up on a Smartboard if you’re in person or share the screen online if you’re teaching virtually.
Gradually release students to practice independently using the practice pages or slides activities. 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.
