This animated video illustrates a visual model for solving a word problem involving the division of fractions. The problem asks students to determine how many equal-sized narwhals are within a whole pod. In the accompanying classroom activity, students work through a similar but more difficult problem with the help of bar models and other visual representations. This resource is part of the Math at the Core: Middle School Collection.
