This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 7, Unit 4, Grade 6. In this activity, students make sense of quotients that are less than 1 and greater than 1 in the same context. Later in the task, students generalize their reasoning to solve division problems (where the quotient is less than 1) without contexts. Given the amount of milk required for 1 batch of ice cream (i.e., the size of 1 group), students "nd out how many batches (i.e., the number of groups or what fraction of a group) can be made with different amounts of milk.
