Unit 4, Lesson 6# Relate fractions as division to fraction of a set.

EngageNY 60 min(s)

In this lesson, students begin interpreting finding a fraction of a set as multiplication of a whole number by a fraction. They will use straws to divide arrays of counters into equal groups and relate it to a multiplication and division equation. For example, 6 divided into 3 equal groups, each group is equal to 2; 6÷3=2 and 1/3 x6=3. Finally, the students will make connections between real world scenarios, models, and equations.
