Please visit my YouTube page for a tutorial on this model titled
6.NS.1 Dividing Fractions - Number Line
Students gain a deeper understanding of division of fractions through modeling. The bar model and number line model are two very aggressive techniques that clearly demonstrate the division process. I suggest that students be exposed to the number line method after the bar model. And students should not have any exposure to the standard algorithm until the very end of 6.NS.1 unit.
The video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qFiJLp4jCxg on my YouTube page explains this concept. I also demonstrate using manipulatives. My students have referred back this as a study tool. If you're new to modeling, this presentation should explain things. Take it easy on yourself :)
I would appreciate feedback on this lesson so I can improve it for the future. Thank you TPT family !
