Dividing Fractions: Going Beyond Procedures and Learning for Deep Understanding

Megan read 3/5 of her book in 6 days. If she read the same number of pages each day, what fraction of the book did she read each day?…

Our district Math coach is all about number lines so I figured it would be best for me to try to "see" it…
