    @Ryan-Foley

    This is super helpful.

    I agree that using concrete and visual models is so important to make sense of mathematics.

    It looks like you’ve attacked this “naked” division of fractions problem quotatively (i.e.: determining how many groups of 1/3 are in 2 1/3)

    I wonder if anyone out there is interested in trying to tackle this partitively?

    The two types of division are shared here: http://mathisvisual.com/division/
