In this 77 page file, you will receive 4 Lesson Plans that will help your students build a superior conceptual understanding of how to divide fractions. In this lesson bundle you will get the following:

Sequence of Lessons:
Pre-requisite Skill: Multiplying Fractions Students will learn what is really happening when two values are being multiplied together. This will help them to understand why you multiply the numerators together to get the new numerator and why you multiply the two denominators together to get the new denominator.

Lesson Includes:
•Fully typed out UBD lesson plan and Teacher Notes
•Power Point and all Instructional Videos
•Accompanying Student Notes Sheet
•Practice Worksheets

Lesson 1: Introduction to Dividing Students will first manipulate counter chips to better understand what they are doing when they are dividing. Students will then manipulate fraction bars either by using a fraction bar manipulative website (or by using the attached templates that students can cut out if access to computers is not possible) to also discover what happens when you divide a whole number by a fraction. Students will begin to discover a pattern when they divide a whole number by a fraction.

Lesson Includes:
•Fully typed out UBD lesson plan and Teacher Notes
•Power Point and all Instructional Videos
•Accompanying Student Notes Sheet
•Practice Worksheets

Lesson 2: What is a reciprocal? Students will once again use the fraction bar manipulative website to understand what a reciprocal is. They will discover that a reciprocal is what you can multiply a fraction by in order to make a MAGIC ONE©.

Lesson Includes:
•Fully typed out UBD lesson plan and Teacher Notes
•Power Point and all Instructional Videos
•Accompanying Student Notes Sheet
