Grade Level6th
Week #6
Unit of InstructionNumber Systems
Standard(s) Taught

MAFS.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

• model division of fractions with manipulatives, visual
diagrams (bar models, number lines), and word
problems.
• interpret what the quotient represents in mathematical
real-world problems.
• understand that multiplication and division are inverse
operations.
• divide fractions procedurally using the multiplicative
inverse.

Classroom Activities

In class, we complete the MATH workshop each period. This is a blended, rotation model of teaching where your student is receiving the standards in multiple different settings while completing many different activities. This allows me to have time with your students in a very small group setting to help when necessary further develop the understanding of the standards.

 

Assignments Due

The week students will be assigned the following on IXL to practice class concepts:

IXL: (Monday/Wednesday/Thursday) K6, K11, L5 students are expected to reach at least an 80% on these assignments. 

Homework this week will be due 9/27/18: Mathspace HOMEWORK #4 Multiply and Divide Fractions

Quarterly Project: The quarterly project information will be given to students on Wednesday 9-19-18 and will be due on October 10. This is a Summative grade. Please see attached for instructions and grading rubric

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
