PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Help your students master word problems involving division and multiplication of whole numbers and fractions with these LEVELED task cards that make differentiation easy! A recording sheet and an answer sheet are included for student accountability. It works especially well in math centers or small groups and is great for independent or partner practice.

**********************************************************************
*18 Cards (color and black and white version)
*Each card can be printed with a labeled back for easy organization.
*3 Ability Levels (6 cards at each level)
*Student Recording Sheet and Answer Key included
*Student Directions Sheet included
*Works great in centers/small groups or for intervention.

*We recommend printing on card stock and laminating for years of use!
*If you choose to use the black/white versions we suggest printing the three ability levels on different colored paper for easy organization.
*We have found in our classrooms that it is best to store this game in a 3-prong pocket folder. Place the directions and answer sheets in sheet protectors inside the folder and store the cards in baggies in the pocket. The cover sheet makes a great label for the front of the folder.

Common Core Standards Covered

5.NF.B.4
Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication to multiply a fraction or whole number by a fraction.

5.NF.B.4.a
Interpret the product (a/b) × q as a parts of a partition of q into b equal parts; equivalently, as the result of a sequence of operations a × q ÷ b. For example, use a visual fraction model to show (2/3) × 4 = 8/3, and create a story context for this equation. Do the same with (2/3) × (4/5) = 8/15. (In general, (a/b) × (c/d) = ac/bd.)

5.NF.B.6
Solve real world problems involving multiplication of fractions and mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.

5.NF.B.7
Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions.

5.NF.B.7.b
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.

5.NF.B.7.c
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?
