              Dividing Fractions and Mixed Numbers

              Students learn how to divide with fractions and mixed numbers using numerical and calculator methods.  As learning progresses they  apply their learning to calculate the width of a rectangle when its length and area are known.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to divide one ordinary fraction by another using its reciprocal.
              • Most students should be able to divide a fraction by a mixed number using its reciprocal.
              • Some students should be able to solve problems involving the product of two ordinary fractions or mixed numbers.
