This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 13, Unit 5, Grade 6. This lesson demonstrates how the division of two equivalent expressions result in the same quotient. By looking at worked-out calculations, students reinforce their understanding about what each part of the calculations represent. The advantage of representing a quotient with a different equivalent expression is so students can simplify problems involving division of decimals by rewriting expressions using whole numbers.
