All students will participate in the Whole Group experience led by the classroom teacher. The introductory lesson will engage students in interpreting a fraction as a division problem. The process focuses on developing students’ ability to write and interpret whole number division story problems and to express answers in the form of a fraction or mixed number. Students will also use visual models and equations to represent problem situations. Aligned to CCSS: 5.NF.3
