6.NS.1.1

Interpret and compute quotients of fractions, and solve word problems involving division of
fractions by fractions, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the
problem.

Learning Targets and Learning Criteria

Learning Targets: 

I know I am successful when I can:

• understand how visual models such as fraction bars and area models show the division of fractions by fractions with common denominators.
• make connections to the multiplication of fractions.
• understand that the division of fractions requires students to ask, “How many groups of the divisor are in the dividend?” to get the quotient.
• demonstrate further understanding of division of fractions when creating word problems.
• connect models of fractions to multiplication using multiplicative inverses as they are represented in models.
• divide fractions by mixed numbers by first converting mixed numbers into a fraction with a value larger than one.
• use equations to find quotients.

Classroom Activities

Tuesday 9/5 we will take our first Test in our Number Systems Unit. This will cover GCF/LCM and Long Division. Students will be given an entire class period to take this test.

We will begin learning about multiplying and dividing fractions this week. Students will participate in a notebook activity as well as other in class activities to practice these new skills. 

 

Assignments Due

Students will complete a Mathspace Assignment entitled “Long Division” by Friday 9/8/17. This was assigned last week. There were multiple opportunities in class to complete this assignment, if not complete in class, students will need to finish at home. 

Additional Resources

If additional help is needed, students are encouraged to view a lesson regarding a given topic on Khan Academy. This website is free and provides both video instruction as well as practice problems. 

Students are able to complete additional practice on both Mathspace and IXL
