This video is one of a series (all 5 minutes and under) which align to the 5th Grade Common Core Math Standards. This particular video relates to 5.NF.7a " Interpret division of a unit fraction by a non-zero whole number, and compute such quotients. For example, create a story context for (1/3) ÷ 4, and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (1/3) ÷ 4 = 1/12 because (1/12) × 4 = 1/3."
