Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

Take notes about your classmates’ methods for dividing a fraction by a whole number.

As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

  • Where in your model do you see the total amount that you divided into equal groups?
  • Where in your model do you see the number of equal groups?
  • Where in your model do you see the size of each group?
  • How can you use what you know about equivalent fractions to make the problem easier?
  • What do you know about the relationship between multiplication and division? How can this relationship help you solve the problem?
