Mathematics
6th Grade
Dividing Fractions
3 45-Minute Periods
By the end of the course, students will be able to recall and explain
mathematics concepts using academic language.
By the end of the lesson, students will be able to divide fractions, whole
numbers, and mixed numbers and put their answer in simplest form.

Standards:

MAFS.6.NS.1.1
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. For example, create a
story context for (2/3) (3/4) and use a visual fraction model to show the
quotient; use the relationship between multiplication and division to
explain that (2/3) (3/4) = 8/9 because 3/4 of 8/9 is 2/3. (In general, (a/b)
(c/d) = ad/bc.) How much chocolate will each person get if 3 people
share 1/2 lb of chocolate equally? How many 3/4-cup servings are in 2/3
of a cup of yogurt? How wide is a rectangular strip of land with length
3/4 mi and area 1/2 square mi?
LACC.68.RST.1.3
Follow precisely a multistep procedure when carrying out experiments,
taking measurements, or performing technical tasks.

Objectives:

Given 15 problems on dividing mixed numbers, students will find the


quotient for 10 out of 15 problems correctly.
After completing the telephone activity on dividing mixed numbers from
word problems, students will orally describe how to solve a word
problem dealing with dividing mixed number with 85% accuracy.

Materials
(including
technology):

Class Dojo, Promethean Board, Promethean Slate, ActivExpressions,


Dividing Mixed Numbers flipcharts (Day 1-3), Warm-Up flipchart, Big
Ideas textbook, Big Ideas workbook, Instruction Envelopes, math
folders, paper, pencil, individual whiteboards, dry erase markers, dry
erasers, socks

Questions:

What are the steps you will need to use in order to divide a mixed
number by a fraction, a whole number, or another mixed number?
Why do we use the greatest common factor to simplify fractions?

Adaptations
for ELL

Level 3
During Lesson (Instruction):
- Allow student more time to respond to questions during direct
instruction and guided practice.
- Adjust rate of speech during instruction to enhance the students
comprehension of the lesson.
During Homework and/or Class work:
- Provide students with clear directions during the lesson. Simplify and
chunk the directions as needed.
- Model additional examples of word problems for the student.
During Assessment:
- Require the students to show their work after finding the quotient to the
first problem.
- Allow the student to work with a friend in the class.

Robert Green

Fall 2014 Internship


- Allow extra time on the quiz.

Adaptations
for ESE

During Lesson (Instruction):


- Orally check for understanding.
- Write key points on the board.
- Provide student with extra wait time.
- Cue student to get back on task.
During Homework and/or Class work:
- Using modeling techniques to explain to the student how to show their
work when answering word problems.
- Have the student use the think aloud strategy when answering a
question.
- Use kinesthetic activities to allow the students to move around.
During Assessment:
- Ensure oral directions are understood.
- Allow students to work with a friend or a positive role model.
- Allow students to have extra time to complete quiz.

Assessment:

Formative Assessment
Formal: The teacher will grade the homework based on how many
questions the students solved correctly. Each question will be worth two
points and partial credit can be earned. The students will have the option
to go back and correct the problems they missed. Students can earn credit
up to 50% on the problems they missed. This 20 point assignment will
count towards their homework grade.
Informal: The teacher will monitor the result of the ActivExpressions
during the warm-up to ensure students answering the questions correctly.
The teacher will provide immediate feedback after each question. While
students work in groups to complete the word problem telephone
activity, the teacher will circulate the room to see if the students are
working together and if they are all on task.
Summative Assessment:
The students will take a fifteen-question quiz that covers how to divide
fractions. Students can earn partial credit if they show their work.
