In this unit students will learn about dividing fractions by whole numbers and dividing whole numbers by fractions, they look for and make use of structure. They do this when they develop connections between whole-number division and fraction division, as well as between division expressions and related multiplication expressions. This builds a foundation for developing the fraction division algorithm.
The lessons accompany and are based on Go Math textbook (5th Grade), with rich content and higher level questions. The lessons can stand on their own even if the instructors does not use Go Math, where alternative practice exercises can be utilized.
