Product Description
Many students struggle to visualize models representing the division of a fraction by a whole number. This product includes a collaborative activity and set of task cards to be used as a math center (or extra practice) to develop connecting a model to events in a story problem. The models are drawn with values and the solution added, so students are not focused on solving the problem, but rather, developing a justification as to why a certain type of model best demonstrates the events of a story problem as well as the solution.

In the collaborative activity, students are given three story problems, all containing the same values, but representing different examples of division. They are also given three models in which they work together in a group to match each model to the story problem that it best demonstrates. Becuase there could be more than one Instructions and guiding questions are provided for the teacher to lead a class discussion of the justifications and lead the class to a summation of ideas based on their observations.

Also included is an Exit Ticket, which requires students to apply their understanding of the concept. Teachers can use this as a formative assessment to determine which students understand the concept and which need additional support.

To additionally develop the concept, a set of ten task cards is included, with instructions and a student recording sheet, which can be used as a math center or extra practice for students.

I appreciate your feedback!
