Divide Unit Fractions & Whole Numbers
5th Grade


Alabama Course of Study Standards:
15.b

Create a story context for a unit fraction divided by a whole number, and use a visual fraction model to
show the quotient. 
Arkansas Academic Standards:
5.NF.B.7.A

Interpret division of a unit fraction by a natural number, and compute such quotients
For example: Create a story context for (1/3) ÷ 4, and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (1/3) ÷ 4 = 1/12 because (1/12) × 4 = 1/3).

5.NF.B.7a

Interpret division of a unit fraction by a nonzero whole number, and compute such quotients. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to justify conclusions.

Kentucky Academic Standards (KAS):
5.NF.7.a
Mississippi College and CareerReadiness Standards:
5.NF.7a

Interpret division of a unit fraction by a nonzero whole number, and compute such quotients. For example, create a story context for (1/3) ÷ 4, and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (1/3) ÷ 4 = 1/12 because (1/12) × 4 = 1/3.

New York State Next Generation Learning Standards:
5.NF.7.a

Interpret division of a unit fraction by a nonzero whole number, and compute such quotients. e.g., Create a story context for 1/3 ÷ 4 and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that 1/3 ÷ 4 = 1/12 because 1/12 × 4 = 1/3. 
Tennessee Academic Standards:
5.NF.B.7.a

Interpret division of a unit fraction by a nonzero whole number and compute such quotients. For example, use visual models and the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (1/3) ÷ 4 =
1/12 because (1/12) &dimes; 4 = 1/3. 
Wisconsin Academic Standards:
5.NF.B.7.a

Interpret and represent division of a unit fraction by a nonzero whole number as an equal sharing division situation. For example, create a story context for (1/3) ÷ 4, and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that (1/3) ÷ 4 = 1/12 because (1/12) × 4 = 1/3. 
Alabama Course of Study Standards:
15.c

Create a story context for a whole number divided by a unit fraction, and use a visual fraction model to
show the quotient. 
Arkansas Academic Standards:
5.NF.B.7.B

Interpret division of a whole number by a unit fraction, and compute such quotients
For example: Create a story context for 4 ÷ (1/5), and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that 4 ÷ (1/5) = 20 because 20 × (1/5) = 4). 
Arizona  K12 Academic Standards:
5.NF.B.7b

Interpret division of a whole number by a unit fraction, and compute such quotients. For example, create a
story context for 4 ÷ (1/5), and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to justify conclusions (e.g., 4 ÷ (1/5) = 20 because 20 × (1/5) = 4). 
Common Core State Standards:
Math.5.NF.7b or 5.NF.B.7.B
Kentucky Academic Standards (KAS):
5.NF.7.b
Mississippi College and CareerReadiness Standards:
5.NF.7b

Interpret division of a whole number by a unit fraction, and compute such quotients. For example, create a story context for 4 ÷ (1/5), and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that 4 ÷ (1/5) = 20 because 20 × (1/5) = 4.

= 4. 
Wisconsin Academic Standards:

Interpret and represent division of a whole number by a unit fraction as a measurement division situation. For example, create a story context for 4 ÷ (1/5), and use a visual fraction model to show the quotient. Use the relationship between multiplication and division to explain that 4 ÷ (1/5) = 20 because 20 × (1/5) = 4.
