Ways of Thinking: Make Connections

Take notes to clarify your understanding of how to divide a whole number by a fraction.

As your classmates present, ask questions such as:

  • How did you use Mia’s solution to 3 ÷ 1 4 to show that your solution to 3 ÷ 3 4 makes sense?
  • How is the whole number (the dividend) represented in Jan’s model?
  • How is the fraction (the divisor) represented in Jan’s model?
  • What does “amount left over” in Jan’s problem mean?
  • Why does Carlos’s method work?
