Warmup

Activity #1

Match Tape Diagrams to Equations.

Here below are three tape diagrams that represent situations about filling containers of water.

• Match each of the three situations below to a diagram and use the diagram to help you answer the question.
• Answer the questions below and write a multiplication equations and a division equations to represent the situations.

(1.) Tyler poured a total of 15 cups of water into 2 equal-sized bottles and filled each bottle. How much water was in each bottle?

(2.) Kiran poured a total of 15 cups of water into equal-sized pitchers and filled one and a half pitchers. How much water was in the full pitcher?

(3.) It takes 15 cups of water to fill one third pail. How much water is needed to fill 1 pail?

Activity #2

Match Tape Diagrams to Equations.

Here are tape diagrams that represent situations about cleaning sections of highway.

• Match each of the three situations below to a diagram and use the diagram to help you answer the question.
• Answer the questions and write a multiplication equations and a division equations to represent the situations.

(1.) Priya’s class has adopted two equal sections of a highway to keep clean. The combined length is three quarters of a mile. How long is each section?

(2.) Lin’s class has also adopted some sections of highway to keep clean. If one and a half sections are three quarters mile long, how long is each section?

(3.) A school has adopted a section of highway to keep clean. If one third of the section is three quarters mile long, how long is the section?
