    Tia’s plant is 12 inches tall. Mike’s plant is 4 inches tall. How would you describe Mike’s plant in relation to Tia’s plant?

    Mike’s plant could be iterated 3 times over Tia’s plant. Therefore, the height of Mike’s plant is one-third the height of Tia’s plant.

    When a student uses multiplicative thinking, they are making use of the multiplication/division relationships between quantities to describe how one quantity is relative to another.
