Students will explore contexts that involve ratio and the ratio’s related rates. Students will continue to use models to reveal the rate through partitive division.

## Intentionality…

In today’s math talk and purposeful practice, students will solve problems involving partitive division. Students will examine sample solutions in an effort to name the strategy and/or model, and offer an alternative strategy.

Some of the big ideas that may emerge through this task include:

- Partitive division is one of the two structures of division;
- In partitive division, the dividend is the quota and the divisor is the number of parts or groups;
- When dividing partitively, the quotient reveals a rate, how many per part (or the quota per group);
- The quotient can be expressed as any fraction equivalent to the dividend over the divisor;
- The number of partitions determines the fraction unit and gives the quantity its name (i.e.: partitioning a whole into 5 parts creates “5 fifth” parts);
- Different denominators can be used to represent equivalent quantities;
- Rate reasoning involves dividing one part of a ratio by the other through partitive division in order to reveal a rate.

## Math Talk

Write each of the following ratios on the board, one at a time. Ask students to develop a context for the following quantities and reveal both of the related rates through partitive division. Ask students to model how the rate can be revealed.
