Given two points, find the point on the line segment between the two points that divides the segment into a given ratio.

#### Essential Understandings

Concrete:

• Using manipulatives (e.g., blocks, modeling clay and string) and a given ratio to determine a dividing point.
Representation:
• Given a line segment and a given ratio, graph a dividing point.
• Understand the following concepts and vocabulary: ratio, partition and line segment.

(Geometry - Major Cluster) :  Clusters should not be sorted from Major to Supporting and then taught in that order. To do so would strip the coherence of the mathematical ideas and miss the opportunity to enhance the major work of the grade with the supporting clusters.
