Dividing Fractions

Watch the attached video and then create a drawing that shows why "flip flop and multiply" works when dividing fractions. Use the problem below: Sarah has 3/4 m. of string that she needs to cut into 1/8 m. pieces. How many pieces can she cut? On the attached pages, please show the concept (drawing), followed by the procedural work, and then a final page that shows your understanding of the algorithm (division is equivalent to multiplication by the inverse). When you think you’ve got the concept, please complete level N.9 on IXL!
