This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 5, Unit 4, Grade 6. This activity serves two purposes: to explicitly bridge "how many of this in that?" questions and division expressions, and to explore division situations in which the quotients are not whole numbers. Once again students move from reasoning concretely and visually to reasoning symbolically. They start by thinking about "how many rhombuses are in a trapezoid?"
