EngageNY 45 min(s)

Students use visual models, such as fraction bars, number lines, and area models, to show the quotient of whole numbers and fractions and to show the connection between them and the multiplication of fractions. Students divide a fraction by a whole number. At the beginning of class, have students work in pairs to complete the following problems. Write a division sentence to solve each problem.
