Task# Running to School, Variation 3

Illustrative MathematicsVaries

This task builds on a fifth grade fraction multiplication task, '5.NF Running to School, Variation 1.' '6.NS Running to School, Variation 3' uses the identical context, but asks the corresponding 'Group Size Unknown' division problem. See '6.NS Running to School, Variation 2' for the 'Number of Groups Unknown' version. The purpose of this task is to help students extend their understanding of division of whole numbers to division of fractions, and given the simple numbers used, it is most appropriate for students just learning about fraction division because it lends itself easily to a pictorial solution.
