Math lesson for 6th grade for teaching fraction division. Video instruction, worked examples, guided practice, and instructor notes.
For one-on-one or whole-class mathematics instruction, use this Guzinta Math lesson as a supplement for teaching fraction division, volume and surface area, and mean, median, mode, and range--all key concepts in 6th grade.
NEW 5.0 version contains a slicker look, an exploratory module on dividing fractions using models, and extra practice questions which appear progressively over 3 weeks from starting the app.
The app includes the popular Practice Meter feature, which can keep track of each student's practice level for this app across sessions. The purpose of the Practice Meter is to motivate students to come back and revisit this content and complete modules at regular intervals. Revisit the lesson app to keep your Practice Meter out of the red (or in the blue). It becomes easier over time to maintain your practice level above the key levels of 80 or 25, because the meter depletes much more slowly after a week, then a month, then 3 months, has passed.
This math lesson app also includes a new NOTES feature: helpful tips for students, self-explanation questions, further information, and even suggestions for extension or family involvement--for every question and example!
Guzinta Math: Fraction by Fraction Division focuses on the reasoning behind the invert-and-multiply rule and presents different strategies for fraction division as well: including simply dividing across (yep!) and determining equivalent fractions and then dividing the numerators. Students also use fraction multiplication and division to calculate the volumes and surface areas of different rectangular prisms in a variety of contexts. Finally, students briefly investigate calculating the mean, median, mode, and range of numeric data sets.
For one-on-one or whole-class mathematics instruction, use this Guzinta Math lesson as a supplement for teaching fraction division, volume and surface area, and mean, median, mode, and range--all key concepts in 6th grade. The app includes detailed instructor notes for each guided practice problem, with notes about extending discussion around each worked example or instructional video.
Instructors and/or students can turn on and use the new canvas feature in the app to write all over the screen--take notes, highlight key terms and ideas, show work, etc.
