Subjects: math

Grades: 3,4,5,6,7

Description: Students will solve division word problems with mixed number quotients, in this pizza shop- themed activity. Students will see a word problem and a coordinating fraction- model image. First, they will write the problem as an improper fraction. Next, they will use division to solve the problem, showing all of their work right in the card. Finally, they will type the mixed number answer. Directions on "how to use the fraction-model image to check the answer" are included. Scaffolding provided by color-coded boxes in the equations. Since students show ALL work on the card, if they make an error, they will see exactly where the error(s) occurred when they click "submit" (i.e. only the incorrectly entered numbers will turn red, all correct numbers will still turn green). Divisors (numerators) up to 12 and dividends (denominators) up to 9. 5.NF.3 Interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by the denominator (a/b = a รท b). Solve word problems involving division of whole numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.
