About the Differentiated Fraction Tasks and Challenges

*This engaging no-prep fractions resource contains 16 differentiated fraction tasks or challenges.

*Each task or challenge is presented in a word problem format. Many of the challenges contain multiple steps and/or tables to help organize information presented.

About the Differentiation

Each task contains two levels to help you differentiate.

•Level 1: This level is the simpler level. This level may contain simpler numbers (Examples: like denominators, smaller factors, etc), models, equation scaffolds, or thinking prompts. These levels would work best for 4th grade students or struggling 5th and 6th grade students.

•Level 2: This is an on-grade level task or challenge that is geared toward 5th grade standards. This level would work with below level 6th graders or advanced 4th graders.

These tasks all have a chocolate theme making them more engaging for students. Topics of the challenges include cookies, cake, donuts, and chocolate covered strawberries, to name a few!

These tasks could be used for RTI, assessment, centers, enrichment, etc!
