I have many students who have a really hard time with the algorithm for long division especially when it involves turning fractions into decimals. Perhaps it is the misconseption that the "larger number always goes into the division bracket," perhaps it is the confusion of the steps. Either way, I designed this as a progression tool. A student will start with conversion of a single digit denominator and numerator and work thier way up to larger (or smaller) fractional parts. As they show mastery they can move to the higher sets..
•3 graphic organizers (single digit numerator and denominator, double digit denominator, and double digit numerator and denominator.)
•3 sets of matching task cards for single digit divisiors. (12 questions - two sets each (color and printer friendly)
•3 matching answer sheets and teacher keys
I used this in my own class and the students who were using it felt very confident after just one day! I actually printed two of the graphic organizers, and before laminating I filled out one with an example that is not on the cards so that the students could see how I did it. I then laminated the two graphic organizers back to back. I set up this station with a dry erase marker and eraser so that the student used the organizer for their work and then just wrote the answer on the answer sheet!
