Dividing Fractions Activity

How well do your students do with dividing fractions? Do they understand this concept well, or do they need additional practice? Look no further if you are looking for an activity to help students retain a skill or strengthen their understanding of how to work with fractions! Teach Starter has created a match-up activity that your students can use while exploring different ways to work with fractions.

This match-up activity has 36 cards where students will solve a variety of division problems with fractions. While mixed numbers are not included in this activity, there are some cards that use improper fractions. Students must find the correct answer for each equation in lowest terms.

Tips for Differentiation + Scaffolding 

A team of dedicated, experienced educators created this resource to support your math lessons. 

In addition to individual student work time, use this match-up activity to enhance learning through guided math groups or whole class lessons.

If you have a mixture of above and below-level learners, check out these suggestions for keeping students on track with the concepts: 

🆘 Support Struggling Students

For students who need additional support, invite students to reference previous assignments, posters, or anchor charts showing the steps to divide fractions. Additionally, students can complete this activity in a small group or one-on-one setting.

➕ Challenge Fast Finishers

If there are students who need an additional challenge, consider using the editable version to include mixed numbers.

👯 Find Your Match

Provide each student in your class with either a fraction equation card or an answer card. Challenge the students to find the student with either their matching equation or answer card. For an extra challenge, make the activity a race or ask the students to complete the task in silence!
