Welcome to my first Workin' on it Wednesday Linky! Each Wednesday, I'd like to share what we've been working on in the classroom, or activities that we have tried with our students, or materials that we've made to help our students' learning. I would love to see blog posts linked up, but I am ok with freebies or paid products as well. I will attempt to make a button for this during the next week, but I don't have one made yet (it might take me awhile!)

My Workin' on it Wednesday is related to fraction division. We've been working on the fraction operations, and will start division on our next school day (whenever that may be, with the impending snow and Presidents' Day!) After school I worked on creating a visual that shows models of division, to help students understand what dividing fractions and mixed numbers looks like and means; I also included examples to show how to divide fractions, using both the reciprocal method and the common denominators method.

Before I share this with my students we will spend some time exploring fraction division with a few word problems to think about, explore, and solve.

What are you working on? Please link up and share!

I am not middle school but I would love to join this link party to get more ideas with Math. We are out of school this week due to snow but we have been working on patterns in multiplication and division. I posted a link to an math activity pack I created for my students.

ReplyDeleteBy the way, I love your anchor chart on Dividing Fractions. I'm very good at fractions but I can see how it can be difficult. That anchor chart is awesome.

Thanks for linking up! I like the bowling idea in your product:)

ReplyDeleteMisty,

ReplyDeleteI love your anchor chart! I left a comment on your blog. Thanks for linking up!

I love the first day activity using Pentominoes. They are the best! My 8th grade students beg to use them. :)

ReplyDeleteThanks for hosting the linky.

Thanks Jill - I'm glad I started using them. I love your color by number activities.... had thought about creating some a while back, but never got around to it:( Thanks for linking up!

ReplyDeleteI love this idea, I'm sure students were able to clearly understand the concept of dividing numbers with fractions. I hope I can use your idea, but I'll be sure to quote you. Thank you for sharing!
