Do your students need practice learning to multiply a fraction by a whole number? This product contains 3 different levels of complexity for finding the fraction of a set. This bundle is great for scaffolding during a unit on fractions, as well as allowing you to differentiate instruction for your class during a learning center activity.
✅ Update: Teachers Pay Teachers has included a digital overlay. This means you can upload it directly to your Google Classroom from this site. Students can use the pen or highlight tool to select groups of dots. They can type answers in the provided text boxes.
The products in this bundle include the following sets, but by buying all 3 in this bundle you will save money!
➊ Fraction of a Set Task Cards Level 1
➋ Fraction of a Set Task Cards Level 2
➌ Fraction of a Set Task Cards Level 3
Simply laminate the task cards, copy the recording sheets, and model for students how to circle rows (which are horizontal) and columns (which are vertical).
Students can make several attempts at dividing the number. For kids who are afraid to make mistakes on paper and hate erasing, using markers that they can wipe off can make all the difference in their risk taking and learning.
Each Set Contains:
✅ 18 task cards that include directions, an array, and 3 different "fraction of a set" questions on each card
✅ A "Sample Card" to show students how to circle the sets of equal amounts, as well as the correct way to write division number sentences.
These cards will print fine if you are using black ink!
You will need:
► Colored card stock (optional) for printing the cards on, for a colorful display
► Laminating sheets (optional) for durability
► Index cards
► Dry erase markers
❶ Fraction of a Set Task Cards 1
These task cards introduce students to the concept of what fraction of a set means by using division. This activity helps children practice dividing up numbers into equal groups visually, so they can identify included parts of the set using their models. This set starts students off slow, so in EVERY problem the numerator is 1 (hence, there is no multiplying yet. Sets 2 and 3 have varied numerators).
❷ Fraction of a Set Task Cards 2
The concept of what fraction of a set even means is abstract for some students, which makes the algorithm take longer to learn. These division task cards help children practice dividing up numbers into equal groups visually, so they can identify included parts of the set using their models.
❸ Fraction of a Set Task Cards 3
This activity helps students practice visually finding the fraction of a set of items. This is the third set in the Fraction of a Set Task Cards series, so it is the most challenging. Each card has 3 different denominators to divide the set of dots into.
