Even though I’ve taught math (and fractions) for years, I am learning so much. I really appreciate the way you are breaking it down into small pieces of learning. Do you think it is important to use the word “partition” with students when you talk about breaking a whole into parts? I, too, confess to being confused by the visual for the partitive division of 3/4 divided by 1/4. I don’t think of it that way, and so it is hard to wrap my mind around the value of that particular method. Is there anything you can add? Maybe, as I progress through the lessons, it will become clearer to me. Thank you so much for this course!
