Description: Using these Boom Cards, help your students model unit fraction division when dividing a unit fraction by a whole number! Students are given a visual model and are asked to interpret the model to fill in the corresponding equation. In this deck: 20 models with unit fractions divided by whole numbers. Standard: Apply and extend previous understandings of division to divide fractions. 22.NF.7_a interpret division of a unit fraction by a non-zero whole number and compute such quotients (e.g., create a story context for (1/3) ÷ 4 = 1/12 and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (1/3) ÷ 4 = 1/12 because (1/12) x 4 = 1/3)
