Division of whole numbers where the quotients are fractions is illustrated by paper-folding strips of paper. Such illustrations provide a visual model for connecting division of whole numbers to fraction symbols. Adding machine rolls of paper are convenient for this activity. Such demonstrations illustrate the equation that m divided by n equals the fraction m/n. That is, dividing one whole number by another results in a fraction having one number as the numerator and the other as the denominator. This rule is then used to obtain the answers to word problems involving division of whole numbers. The video ends with a demonstration of the "Greater Quotient Game" a free interactive web game from fractionbars.com.
