## Monday, September 29, 2014 - I can divide with fractions using models. I can interpret division expressions involving fractions and their solutions.

**Bell Work**- Mixed review.

**Classwork**

(1) "Summarizing Factors and Multiples" foldable was returned. Please check out student samples, highlighted with stickers on the spine!

(2) Translate the expressions we completed last Friday in written form.

(3) Complete 2 sets of factor models using different variations of 2 and 5 as the dividend and divisor. Students translated each expression to see two ways of dividing - repeated subtraction or partitioning the whole. If the size of the divisor is given, then you must find how many groups of this divisor are in the dividend. If the size of the divisor is unknown and the number of groups are given, then you must find the size of the divisor. These examples show you how this short cut/algorithm, "Keep, Change, Flip," developed. The solutions of each set have similar values compared to one another, but each solution is unique and describes something different according to the dividend. Pay attention to what is being divided and what is doing the dividing.

**Homework**- "Dividing Fractions Task" - Samantha's bows, part A and B.

## Tuesday, September 30, 2014 - I can divide with fractions using models and the standard algorithm. I can interpret division expressions and their solutions.

**Bell Work**- Define "reciprocal" using p.270-271 in the Hold textbook. Then, complete Examples 1 and 2, all parts. Add this to your bellwork template.

**Classwork Part 1**

(1) Complete the lab p.268-269. Check solutions below.

#1 of Activity 1 could also be written as 3_3/4 divided by groups of 1_1/4. How many 1_1/4 can you get from 3_3/4? Notice that the dividend stays the same, but the divisor can be the number of groups the dividend is being divided into or it can be the amount of each group that will be repeatedly subtracted from the dividend. |
#1 of Activity 2 could also be written as 2_2/3 divided by 4.
#2 of Activity 2 could also be written as 3 divided by 4. |

**Classwork - Part 2**- Complete the following problems from p.272-273 and turn in work for this and the lab. #14 - 18, 24 - 28, 42, 43, 52, 60 - 64, 66, 67. Work will be graded for accuracy.

**Homework**- Complete "Activity 38" located on the back of "Dividing Fractions Task - Samantha's Bows." Complete all problems, then draw fraction models for #1, 3, 4, 13, and 15. Check solutions below.

## Wednesday, October 1, 2014 - I can divide with fractions using models. I can interpret division problems as either using repeated subtraction or partitioning.

**Bell Work**- Mixed review.

**Classwork**

(1) Discuss what is a reciprocal. "Two numbers are reciprocals if their product is 1.

(2) Review the lab - Model Fraction Division p.268-269. Below are the fraction models for both activities. The other solutions are posted above under Tuesday.

**Activity 2**

**Dividing Fractions Task (Samantha's Bows) - Homework from Monday night discussed.**

**Homework**- (1) Using Activity 38, complete models and interpret the expression and solution for questions 1, 3, 4, 13, and 15. (2) Complete "Fractional Divisors Task" - 4 scenarios. Draw models and write an expression to represent each solution. Unit test over GCF, LCM, distributive property, and dividing fractions is scheduled for tomorrow. Make sure you know your vocabulary.

**be tested over**

__will not__**, only the ones we have been using. Check your foldable notes, writing assignments, classwork, and project for the use of mathematical terms on the following list. As you review for the final exam, see if you can define these terms on your own. Write the definition of each term in your own words or use the definitions provided. These definitions can be found from the Georgia Department of Education and intermath.coe.uga.edu.**
