Write down the three steps that are involved in dividing fractions.

Objective: Students will be able to demonstrate how to divide a fraction with a whole number using a candy bar with 80% accuracy.

### Vocabulary

**Numerator- Top of a fraction, represents how much you have.****Denominator- Bottom part of a fraction, represents the total number of equal parts.****Whole Number Fractions- any number over 1: 6=6/1****Multiply Fractions- multiply straight across**

How is dividing and multiplying fractions related?

- Dividing by a fraction is the same as multiplying by its reciprocal.
- Just like in the video where it says 'flip' that is the same as finding the reciprocal.
- For example, the reciprocal of 2/3 is 3/2 because 2/3 times 3/2=6/6, and 6/6=1
- So remember when solving a problem follow three steps.

- Keep the first fraction the same
- Rewrite as a multiplication problem
- Find the reciprocal (flip)
