Product Description
Use this fun format to introduce or review dividing fractions and mixed numbers. This resource has two different wheels – one wheel outlines the steps of multiplying by the reciprocal, and the other outlines how to divide fractions by using common denominators. I like to teach both ways, so students know that both ways exist and so they can become proficient using both methods. Students can keep these graphic organizers in their notebooks as a resource/study tool.

Each section of the wheel outlines a step of the fraction division process:
Multiplying by Reciprocal:
1) Convert to improper fractions
2) Rewrite as multiplication
3) Cross out
4) Multiply numerators; multiply denominators
5) Simplify

Using Common Denominators:
1) Convert to improper fractions
2) Find common denominators
3) Create a new fraction, with the numerator of the 1st fraction on top and the numerator of the 2nd fraction on bottom
4) Simplify

There are two examples included in each step/section.
There are 8 problems in the pattern around the circle, for students to practice dividing fractions and mixed numbers.

Students can color the background pattern for fun, as well as the headings and doodle arrows.

** There are 2 PPT pages included that are blank wheels with a background; you can add text to them to make your own math wheels, if you’d like (for classroom use only - not commercial use).

This resource is part of the Math Wheel of the Week bundle.
