Unit 4, Lesson 4# Use tape diagrams to model fractions as division.

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students continue understanding the division of whole numbers with answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers. Students continue to interpret remainders as fractions. They use tape diagrams to rename larger units in terms of smaller units. For example, 5 tons divided into 4 trucks results in 5/4 tons per trucks. Then they visualize a number line and determine the two whole numbers that result is between, and finally they check their work with repeated addition.
