Our Fractions – Dividing and Whole Numbers lesson plan teaches students how to solve division problems that include unit fractions. During this lesson, students are asked to work cooperatively with a partner to create four different word problems, two of which must require whole number division by a fraction and the other two of which must require a fraction being divided by a whole number; once completed, they meet with another pair of students who will solve the problems. Students are also asked to solve practice division problems that include fractions.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole numbers by unit fractions.
