This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 8, Unit 4, Grade 6. In this task, students explore division situations (in the context of baking cookies) where the number of groups and a total amount are given, but the size of 1 group is unknown. They write multiplication equations in which the missing factor answers the question "how much in each group?" instead of "how many groups?" Students continue to use equations, diagrams, and the connection between multiplication and division in their reasoning. No grid is provided here, but allow students to use graph paper to support their diagram drawing if desired or needed.
