Standards Apply and extend previous understandings of multiplication and division. CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.5.NF.B.3Interpret a fraction as division of the numerator by the denominator (a/b = a ÷ b). Solve word problems involving division of whole numbers leading to answers in the form of fractions or mixed numbers, e.g., by using visual fraction models or equations to represent the problem.  Visualizing the

Build a Model
