This Dividing Fractions PowerPoint Lesson is perfect for a 5th grade math class. Students will learn how to divide whole numbers and unit fractions using models, a number line, and the standard algorithm.

  • This lesson is great for students AND teachers! I created it as a way to scaffold instruction as I introduced my students to division of unit fractions and whole numbers.
  • I use it in my own 5th grade classroom, and my students excel with this math concept!

This 137 slide presentation includes:

  1. Dividing a whole number by a unit fraction with models and number lines
  2. Dividing a unit fraction by a whole number with models and number lines
  3. Practice reading and writing real world dividing fractions and whole numbers word problems
  4. Dividing unit fractions using the standard algorithm (keep, change, flip)

Covers 5th Grade Common Core Standard: 5.NF.B.7

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Helen S. said, “There is so much about this product this is exceptional. I love the breakdown of the problems, pulling out the numbers first and then showing their meaning using models, and having the kids create their own word problems was brilliant! If you are questioning whether to get this product or not, do it! You won't be disappointed. - A Very Happy 6th Grade Math Teacher (Hybrid Teaching)"

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Madeline S. said, “This was super helpful for teaching dividing fractions! I loved all the real world examples."

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Jennifer Q. said, “This was very helpful for both my students and myself. It gave a ton of practice problems for my students to build on their skills."

Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions.
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?
