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

This week we will continue learning to multiply and divide fractions.

We will complete our step-by-step guide in our notebook for multiplication and division of fractions.

We will also be practicing these skills using both IXL and MathSpace

 

Assignments Due

This week we have 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
