About the Lesson

This TI-Nspire™ lesson uses number lines along with equivalent fractions to help students develop a method for dividing fractions. Once equivalent fractions with common denominators have been identified, focus on the relationship between the numerators in the two fractions, regardless of the denominators. Students need experience in creating equivalent fractions and multiplying fractions.

This is Lesson 13 out of 15 in the Building Concepts in Mathematics: Fractions Series.
