Even when students understand the difference between these types of division contexts when they involve whole numbers, the transition to division problems involving fractions is not easy. In order to successfully make this transition, students must have a solid understanding of multiplication and division with whole numbers and multiplication with fractions.
These two tasks are meant as instructional tasks, with the idea that students who can solve these problems with diagrams may or may not see the connection to division. Thus, the tasks ask students to make this connection explicit.
