Task# Minutes and Days

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

This task requires division of multi-digit numbers in the context of changing units and so illustrates 5.NBT.6 and 5.MD.1. In addition, the conversion problem requires two steps since 2011 minutes needs to be converted first to hours and minutes and then to days, hours, and minutes. In the solution, the division problem is handled in a way that aligns both with the usual division algorithm and with the scaffold method.
