# Dividing Mixed Numbers and Top-Heavy Fractions

Students learn about dividing mixed numbers and top-heavy fractions using visual and written methods.At the start of the lesson students recap using visual methods to divide with normal fractions.  The plenary is used to assess the student's progress against each of the differentiated learning objectives.
##### Differentiated Learning Objectives
• All students should be able to divide a top-heavy fraction or mixed number by an integer.
• Most students should be able to use visual methods to divide with top-heavy fractions and mixed numbers.
• Some students should be able to use written methods to divide with top-heavy fractions and mixed numbers.
