Fraction Division: "doodle notes" -

 

When students color or doodle in math class, it activates both hemispheres of the brain at the same time. There are proven benefits of this cross-lateral brain activity:

- new learning

- relaxation (less math anxiety)

- visual connections

- better memory & retention of the content!

 

Students fill in the sheets, answer the questions, and color, doodle or embellish. Then, they can use it as a study guide later on.

 

Content includes:

- Rewriting as a multiplication problem with a reciprocal

- Why to use a reciprocal

- Reminders on how to multiply

- How to write answers (mixed numbers, simplest form)

- Visual models - dividing into groups

- Dividing combinations of mixed numbers, whole numbers, and fractions

- Practice & Examples

 

Check out the preview images for more detail about this item and the research behind it. 

 

Visual note-taking strategies like sketch notes or doodle notes are based on dual coding theory.  When we can blend the text input with graphic/visual input, the student brain processes the information differently and can more easily convert the new learning into long-term memory.

 

This strategy also integrates the left and right hemispheres of the brain to increase focus, learning, and retention!

3 pages are included, plus answer keys, samples, and info.

Reviews from other teachers:

-This is the perfect anchor chart to print for student math journals AND to add to Google Classroom for homework help.

-This resource is great. The worksheets are easy to use for special education classrooms. The students were able to get the concepts of dividing fractions fairly well and quickly.

-I use this with my 6th graders. I love the algorithm and visual model parts. Doodle notes stretch my students' thinking.

-I had to teach summer school for Grade 8 Math and I thought this would be a more engaging way to learn and practice the concepts rather than just a textbook!

-This resource is great. The worksheets are easy to use for special education classrooms. The students were able to get the concepts of dividing fractions fairly well and quickly.

-This resource was engaging, fun, and a great learning opportunity for my students. They struggled a lot with understanding the concept of dividing fractions before I introduced this resource to them. However, after a lesson and this as a supplemental aide, my students were able to understand and learn the steps of dividing fractions.
