In this lesson, students will divide a unit fraction by a whole number. Solve partitive division word problems that involve the division of a unit fraction by a whole number. Estimate the size of a quotient of a unit fraction divided by a whole number by reasoning that dividing a fraction into some number of groups will result in smaller groups or a smaller value. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to use multiplication to check the quotient to a problem involving the division of a unit fraction by a whole number.
