About This Lesson

This lesson is the first of 3 regarding the concept of division of fractions and standard 6.NS.1. Lesson 1 supports students in making general sense of division and applying these generalities to fractional division. It seeks to take the comfort students have with whole numbers into fractions. The second lesson will focus more on the visual model aspect of the standard. Lesson 3 takes students from the visual to numerical and efficiency with fractional division calculations. Each of the 3 lessons culminates with word problems in order to ground the math in reality for students. CCSS: 6.NS.1

Did the whole series of 3 lessons and found them to be a wonderfully different approach to the division of fractions. The lessons tackle both deeper meaning as well as efficiency of calculation.
