This resource consists of 24 decomposing fractions task cards that will help keep your students engaged while practicing this important skill. Students will gain an understanding that a unit fraction is a fraction that has a numerator of 1, over a given denominator. Students will be able to practice this activity in a whole group setting, small groups, or even independently.

By having visual models in this resource to refer to, students will gain a better understanding of fractions and how a sum of a fraction can be written in multiple ways. Decomposing Fractions can be a very difficult concept for students to grasp but having students understand unit fractions really gets the balling rolling for most students.

Whether you are in need of a βhookβ or an opening to instruction, something to use in direct small group instruction, independent practice, or doing math centers, these task cards will do the trick.

Task Cards allow me to do a variety of activities in my classroom. Sometimes I post different cards around the room for a scavenger hunt. Other times I use them to play the game Scoot. Whatever it takes to get my students active and engage, Iβm all for it.

Below is what is included in this product:

24 Numbered Task Cards to help with organization

Anchor Chart with examples for conceptual knowledge and real world scenarios.

Recording Sheet

There is absolutely no prep work, just download, copy on to cardstock, and laminate. If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to email me at fromfrowns2smiles@gmail.com.

Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction by a whole number.
Understand a fraction π’/π£ with π’ > 1 as a sum of fractions 1/π£.
Explain why a fraction π’/π£ is equivalent to a fraction (π― Γ π’)/(π― Γ π£) by using visual fraction models, with attention to how the number and size of the parts differ even though the two fractions themselves are the same size. Use this principle to recognize and generate equivalent fractions.
