In this lesson, students will model fractions as division using tape diagrams and solve word problems involving division of whole numbers with answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers. Solve word problems involving division of whole numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers using tape diagrams. Check the solution to a division problem with a fractional quotient using multiplication and solving that multiplication sentence using repeated addition. Explain how the fractional part of a mixed-number quotient is related to the remainder in the problem.
