Our Interpret Division of a Unit Fraction lesson plan teaches students how to divide a unit fraction by a whole number. During this lesson, students are asked to work collaboratively with a group of their peers to write a word problem and show a visual and mathematical solution for a given expression. Students are also asked to solve practice problems in order to demonstrate their understanding of the lesson material.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to divide a unit fraction by a non-zero whole number using the standard algorithm and a visual fraction model to show the quotient.
