Fraction Division


Students reason about the size of the unit when 14 is partitioned into 5 equal parts: 14 ÷ 5. Using this thinking as a backdrop, students are introduced to decimal fraction divisors and use equivalent fraction and place value thinking to reason about the size of quotients, calculate quotients, and sensibly place the decimal in quotients.
