Description

This product contains 24 Dividing Fractions and Mixed Numbers Scoot Task Cards. This is designed to help 5th, 6th and 7th graders review dividing fractions and mixed numbers (whole numbers with fractions).

I created this for my 5th graders to play in class. I arrange the cards around my classroom. I make the students fill out a piece of scrap paper showing their work for each problem. I assign the students (in groups of 2 or 3) a starting question and give them about 2 minutes to complete the question. After the 2 minutes, I tell the students to "scoot" to the next question. At the end of the game, I have the students turn in their scrap paper. Whichever group has the most questions right, wins the game. I usually provide a prize for the winner.

The students seem to like working in pairs and moving around the room. I enjoy listening to their discussions with one another regarding each question

Standards

to see state-specific standards (only available in the US).
Interpret and compute quotients of fractions, and solve word problems involving division of fractions by fractions, e.g., by using visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. For example, create a story context for (2/3) ÷ (3/4) and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient; use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (2/3) ÷ (3/4) = 8/9 because 3/4 of 8/9 is 2/3. (In general, (𝘢/𝘣) ÷ (𝘤/𝘥) = 𝘢𝘥/𝘣𝘤.) How much chocolate will each person get if 3 people share 1/2 lb of chocolate equally? How many 3/4-cup servings are in 2/3 of a cup of yogurt? How wide is a rectangular strip of land with length 3/4 mi and area 1/2 square mi?
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.
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.
Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions.
