              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.

              How to Draw a Venn Diagram to Calculate Probabilities

              There are three common ways to organise data that fall into multiple sets: two-way tables, frequency diagrams and Venn diagrams.  Having blogged about frequency diagrams before I thought I would write about how to draw a Venn Diagram to calculate probabilities. Recapping Two-Way Tables This activity works well to review two-way tables from the previous […]
