CONCRETE MATH! No more dividing fractions with the algorithm! This PowerPoint requires students to visualize the problem and have them solve it without even realizing it's division. This way of dividing fractions is similar to adding/subtracting fractions because it focuses on a common denominator, so it reinforces the skill.
I used this PowerPoint with dry erase boards:
*8 problems with students drawing and answering scaffolding questions.
*15 independent problems to use, one set of 5 could be used as an exit ticket.
*Then the second half of the PowerPoint can be used a couple days later, to show students that the operation that is being used is division. 8 practice problems with writing and observing the connection with the picture to the division problem.
***The key is not to reveal to them that they are using division in the first half. Use the words "grouping" or "groups".
