This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 5, Unit 4, Grade 6. This activity gives students additional practice in using diagrams and equations to represent division situations involving whole numbers and fractions. For each problem, many kinds of visual representations are possible, but creating a meaningful representation may be challenging nonetheless. Urge students to use the contexts to generate ideas for useful diagrams, and to start with a draft and modify it as needed.
