My 6th graders have been working with dividing fractions for the last two weeks. We explore these four ways, in this order:

- Number line
- Rectangles — I wrote about this here.
- Dividing by one
- Common denominator

It’s completely intentional that we work with the number line and rectangles first. I want my kids to *see* the answer and that it should match their intuition and understanding.
