In this unit students use data and other contexts to solve real world problems involving fractional computations. There is ample opportunity for students to divide unit fractions by whole numbers and whole number by unit fractions. The unit also includes using data from line plots.
Key Concepts:
 We can use our understanding of division to solve realworld divison problems involving fractional quantities.
 We can use division to answer questions about a data set.
 The meaning of measurement division problems is the same regardless of numbers used.
