Lesson objective: Divide measurement values.

This lesson helps to build division with measurement values. Tape diagrams are used here because they help students visualize that the measurement value is an amount of something. In these cases, they are equal amounts. This work develops students' understanding that we can use division to solve problems involving equal groups, arrays, and measurement quantities (including liquid volumes and masses of objects).

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 4 by modeling the mathematics as they represent the problem using a tape diagram. Students will also have to decide on what makes sense in real world mathematics.
