Lesson Planning of Division of Fraction
Subject Mathematics
Grade 4^{th}
Students` Learning Outcomes
 Divide fraction by a whole number
 Divide a whole number by a fraction
 Divide a fraction by another fraction (proper, improper and mixed fractions)
Information for Teachers
 You know how to call the numbers in division?
 To divide 2 fractions multiply the divided by the reciprocal of the divisor.
 Reciprocal of a fraction is [1÷fraction] and it turns the fraction upside down
 Encourage students to help each other in learning these skills.
 While teaching the lesson, the teacher should also consult with textbook at all steps where and when applicable.
Material / Resources
Writing board, chalk/marker, duster, chart paper, textbook
Introduction
 Tell story problems that involve division with whole number on the board.
 Maria has a dozen biscuits. These biscuits have to be shared equally with 6 of her family members. How many biscuits will each of her family member get/?
 Salma wants to get jogging in 2 hours; she can jog a total of 8 miles. How many miles cn she jog in one hour?
 Mother made 36 chocolate chip cookies. How many jars holding 9 cookies each can she fill?
 One day Fiaz collected 60 eggs from his hens on the farm. How many boxes holding 6 eggs each can he fill?
 Ask the students to use any strategy they choose to solve these problems and to show their work.
 Ask the following questions: as;
 What kind of problems are these, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, or division? (Expected answer would be as; Division)
 Tell students that today we will divide fractions the way we have done multiplication of fractions.
Development
Activity 1
Size of chocolate = 1 whole number of pieces required = 5 size of each piece = 1 ÷ 5 size of each piece = 1 x (1 / 5)

Activity 2

Sum up / Conclusion
 Reciprocal of a fraction is 1 fraction, or simply invert the fraction.
 To multiply;
 Change mixed number fractions into improper fraction.
 Take invert of the second fraction
 Multiply the fractions and convert into mixed number fraction if answer comes in improper fractions.
Assessment
 Divide students in groups and provide them two dice in each group.
 Ask students to roll the dice and make a fraction with numbers they get.
 Again roll and make another fraction. Divide both fractions and get the answer.
 Allocate 10 minutes and tell them that the group with maximum questions within the time will win the round’
Follow up
 Give following questions to solve in their notebooks as homework.
 How many halves are there in sixfourth?
 You have 12 ½ cups of flour left in the cupboard. A tray of biscuits requires 1 2/3 cups of flour. How many trays of biscuits can you make?
 An airplane covers 50 miles in 1/5 hours. How many miles can the airplane covers in 5 hours?
