Unit 2, Lesson 2# Interpreting Division of a Whole Number by a Fraction--Visual Models

EngageNY 45 min(s)

Students use fraction bars, number lines, and area models to show the quotient of whole numbers and fractions and to show the connection between those models and the multiplication of fractions. Students understand the difference between a whole number being divided by a fraction and a fraction being divided by a whole number. At the beginning of class, break students into groups. Each group needs to answer the question they have been assigned and draw a model to represent their answer.
