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 and 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

Due to schedule changes during week 4, we are beginning this lesson this week. We will be starting the week reviewing fraction rules and discussing manipulating fractions from improper to mixed and back to improper. 

We have a few notebook activities planned to help with mastery of these skills as well as Math Space assignments. 

Assignments Due

With complications to our schedule, due dates have been adjusted. Students are expected to finish all assignments from past weeks by Friday 9/22/17. Work from weeks 1-5 will not be accepted after this time frame and the grade will reflect a zero.

Students will be assigned a MathSpace assignment entitled “Multiplying and Dividing Fraction Homework” Due Wednesday 9/27/17

 

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
