The new common core has a major focus on teaching the conceptual understanding of dividing fractions. This includes using visual models (including pictures and number lines) in the teaching of fraction operations. Unfortunately, there aren’t many fraction resources out there for teachers. And fraction worksheets are not easy for teachers to make. This worksheet is an introductory worksheet on dividing fractions using the visual model. It has division of whole numbers and fractions by unit fractions.
Common Core Standards:
5.NF.7 Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions.
6.NS.1 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.
