This animated video illustrates a visual model for solving a word problem involving the division of fractions. The problem asks students to use fractions to compare the spring weight of a hedgehog with its weight just before hibernation. In the accompanying classroom activity, students 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.
