1. These Lesson Plans explain that a fraction (a/b) is a division problem where the numerator (a) is divided by the denominator (b).
3/4 = 3 ÷ 4
2. The answers to these division problems can be either a fraction less than one whole or a mixed number depending on the size of the numerator compared to the denominator.
3. Students will solve word problems by drawing pictures, creating equations, and exploring the inverse relationship between multiplication and division. Students will also show where their answers are located on a number line.
4. These Lesson Plans include templates that allow teachers to modify and create additional practice problems for students.
