This video illustrates a visual model for solving a word problem involving the division of fractions. The problem asks students to determine the length of a losing frog's jump in a jumping frog contest based on a comparison with the length of the winning jump. The accompanying classroom activity requires students to use visual models to work through the challenge problem presented at the end of the video, which also involves the division of fractions and comparison. This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
