|MAFS.6.NS.1.1:|| Interpret and compute quotients of fractions, and solve word
problems involving division of fractions by fractions, e.g., by using
visual fraction models and equations to represent the problem. For
example, create a story context for (2/3) ÷ (3/4) and use a visual fraction
model to show the quotient; use the relationship between multiplication
and division to explain that (2/3) ÷ (3/4) = 8/9 because 3/4 of 8/9 is 2/3.
(In general, (a/b) ÷ (c/d) = ad/bc.) How much chocolate will each person
get if 3 people share 1/2 lb of chocolate equally? How many 3/4-cup
servings are in 2/3 of a cup of yogurt? How wide is a rectangular strip of
land with length 3/4 mi and area 1/2 square mi?|
Examples of Opportunities for In-Depth Focus
This is a culminating standard for extending multiplication and division to fractions.
Fluency Expectations or Examples of Culminating Standards
Students interpret and compute quotients of fractions and solve word problems involving division of fractions by fractions. This completes the extension of operations to fractions.
