If you’re teaching about unit rates with fractions (complex fractions), this set of four activities is just what you need. These four activities are perfect for introducing the concept and practicing the concept of unit rates with fractions.
The first activity, Scaling Recipes, use double number lines to introduce the concept of rates with fractions in a way that students can understand. Students use the double number line to find the unit rates, and then are introduced to the idea of using division of fractions to find the unit rate.
The second activity is a partner activity. It is great for practice. Students solve problems, and then check the answers with their partner….who had different problems, but will have the same answers. There is a second part to this activity that has students use different models like double number lines and coordinate graphs to understand the unit rates.
The third and fourth activities are puzzles that are good for practice once your class is getting comfortable with the ideas of unit rates with fractions. See the preview for more details about these puzzles.
