Partitive (Equal Shares) Division of Fractions Tool.  This tool provides you with a connection between a story problem (context), paraphrase, model, and procedure where a fractional value is shared equally. Students complete phrases like: 5 4/5 shared equally among 12. They use a double number line or an area model to visualize the answer, and they connect this understanding to the numeric procedure.
