This animated video illustrates a word problem that requires dividing two fractions with equal groups, group size unknown. Students are presented with a problem that asks how long it takes a sloth to climb down a tree trunk at an even rate and given a solution to the problem that uses visual modeling. In the accompanying classroom activity, students solve a second problem using their own visual models.This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
