This fun game can be run as a math center or with partners to practice dividing whole numbers by unit fractions and unit fractions by whole numbers. Students will love the game format while they model division expressions.
1. Students will represent a division expression (using a whole number and unit fraction) using a model diagram.
2. Students will determine the quotient of a whole number and unit fraction from a model diagram.
3. Students will explain what is represented by the dividend, divisor, and quotient in a division expression.
5.NF.7 – Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions.
A. Interpret division of a unit fraction by a non-zero whole number, and compute such quotients. For example, create a story context for (1/3) ÷ 4, and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (1/3) ÷ 4 = 1/12 because (1/12) × 4 = 1/3.
B. Interpret division of a whole number by a unit fraction, and compute such quotients. For example, create a story context for 4 ÷ (1/5), and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that 4 ÷ (1/5) = 20 because 20 × (1/5) = 4.
