Unit 5, Lesson 4# Decompose fractions into sums of smaller unit fractions using tape diagrams

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students use a tape diagram to model the decomposition of 1/3, 1/5, and 2/5 as the sum of smaller unit fractions. Students also generate a tape diagram and show that 2/6 is the sum of four twelfths.
