Measurement and Fair-Sharing Models for Dividing Fractions

  • Measurement and Fair-Sharing Models for Dividing Fractions

    Jeff Gregg, Diana Gregg
    Construction of two algorithms for dividing fractions, the common-denominator algorithm and the invert-and-multiply algorithm. The rationale behind each algorithm is related to the measurement or fair-sharing interpretations of division. Examples and sample problems are included.
