Divide A Whole Number By A Unit Fraction


Divide a whole number by a unit fraction. Using the same thinking developed in Module 2 to divide whole numbers, students reason about how many fourths are in 5 when considering cases such as 5 ÷ 14. They also reason about the size of the unit when 14 is partitioned into 5 equal parts: 14 ÷ 5.
