Multiplying & Dividing Fractions Activity Pack

(0)
This resource is a collection of ideas to help students work on multiplying and dividing fractions. Including: Multiplying Fractions 4 in a Line Game This activity is to give students a chance to review multiplying fractions by fractions in a fun game activity. They must play in pairs to multiply fractions until they get four blocks in a row.

It is then followed with an activity that leads students from multiplying fractions to thinking about how to find pairs of fractions that multiply to make 1 - i.e. to discovering reciprocals. Multiplying & Dividing Fractions Match This activity focuses on helping students to recognise equivalent calculations. They have to match calculations that result in the same answer, by noticing that multiplying by a fraction is the equivalent of dividing by its reciprocal. Dividing Fractions Missing Numbers Puzzle This activity requires students to work out the missing numbers to make a series of statements about dividing fractions true. It progresses to include some cases of division with mixed numbers. All activities include answers.
