Students divide 12 fraction problems in this trail/scavenger hunt activity. Problems include dividing a fraction by a fraction, whole number by fraction, fraction by whole number and mixed numbers. Several of the answers must be simplified and/or converted back to mixed numbers. Self-checking and more fun than a traditional worksheet! Can be used as an in class activity, homework or sub plan!
Divide the fractions and then simplify and/or write the quotient as a mixed number if possible. Students solve the 1st problem and find the answer in the gray heading of one of the other problems. Write a “2” in the box in the bottom left corner and then complete that problem. Repeat the process, writing a “3” in the third problem, following the trail until all of the problems are complete and you have returned to the start. The 12th problem completed should take the students back to the problem they started with. If it does not or they go back before completing all of the other problems, then they made a mistake somewhere.
