In This Unit of Study…

Students make the connection between fractions and division by understanding that fractions can also represent division of a numerator by a denominator. Students will have many opportunities to explore the relationship between the numerator and denominator within real-world contexts. Students work with fractions greater than one; however, it is not the expectation for students to simplify fractions to lowest terms.

B.E.S.T. Benchmarks:

  • MA.5.FR.1.1 Given a mathematical or real-world problem, represent the division of two whole numbers as a fraction

Key Concepts:

  • I recognize that a fraction represents division of the numerator by the denominator.
  • I can apply what I know about solving word problems with whole numbers to solve those involving fractions and mixed numbers.
