Just a start, but this is following on from a twitter conversation in which a few people helped me to improve my lesson plan and worksheet on dividing fractions.
In the long term, I plan to share all my lessons which lead up to this point, hence the first three ‘topics’, but they’re not yet good enough to be worth sharing!
|Aims||Lesson Plan||Resources Mentioned in Lesson Plan||Notes|
|To know the ‘sticks fitting into a gap’ model of division|
|To divide decimals by considering how the ‘sticks’ or ‘gap’ have changed|
|To divide fractions by considering how the ‘sticks’ or ‘gap’ have changed|
|To divide fractions and mixed numbers using the ‘multiply by the reciprocal’ method||division D||practice|
