This activity was created for middle school math stations on dividing fractions. As students rotate through stations, they can be challenged in individual, partner, and group activities and games. This is an individual practice station. Here, students work independently on a guided problem solving activity. It requires students to solve real world problems by dividing fractions (including dividing unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions). I laminate the included student directions to keep at the station.

Look out for this activity and many others in my eight grade bundles at a deep discount!!! Coming Soon!

Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions.1
Interpret division of a unit fraction by a non-zero whole number, and compute such quotients. For example, create a story context for (1/3) ÷ 4, and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (1/3) ÷ 4 = 1/12 because (1/12) × 4 = 1/3.
Interpret division of a whole number by a unit fraction, and compute such quotients. For example, create a story context for 4 ÷ (1/5), and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that 4 ÷ (1/5) = 20 because 20 × (1/5) = 4.
Solve real world problems involving division of unit fractions by non-zero whole numbers and division of whole numbers by unit fractions, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. For example, how much chocolate will each person get if 3 people share 1/2 lb of chocolate equally? How many 1/3-cup servings are in 2 cups of raisins?
