# Dividing Fractions Doodle Notes

### Description

Fraction Division: "doodle notes" -

When students color or doodle in math class, it activates both hemispheres of the brain at the same time. There are proven benefits of this cross-lateral brain activity:

- new learning

- relaxation (less math anxiety)

- visual connections

- better memory & retention of the content!

Students fill in the sheets, answer the questions, and color, doodle or embellish. Then, they can use it as a study guide later on.

Content includes:

- Rewriting as a multiplication problem with a reciprocal

- Why to use a reciprocal

- Reminders on how to multiply

- How to write answers (mixed numbers, simplest form)

- Visual models - dividing into groups

- Dividing combinations of mixed numbers, whole numbers, and fractions

- Practice & Examples

Visual note taking strategies like sketch notes or doodle notes are based on dual coding theory.Β When we can blend the text input with graphic/visual input, the student brain processes the information differently and can more easily convert the new learning into long-term memory.

This strategy also integrates the left and right hemispheres of the brain to increase focus, learning, and retention!
