# Zoe’s “How to Divide a Whole Number by a Fraction”

Zoe wrote and directed her movie. Adam was the director’s assistant. Metztli and Julissa were the actors.

SCRIPT

A1: Hi _____________. How are you doing?

A2: (sounds gloomy)Hey__________. I’m not doing so good. If I get an F on our 8.4 math quiz, I don’t get to go to the skating rink.

A1: Maybe I can help. I can teach you 8.4.

A1: First we need a problem. Let’s try 9 divided by 1/3. (writes on board)

A1: Then to change 9 into a fraction you put a 1 underneath it and a fraction bar between it.(writes down)

A1: After that you bring down the 9/1 and change the division into multiplication.(writes down)

A1: Next switch the 1/3 into 3/1 and bring it down.(writes down)

A1: Finally you multiply. 9/1 times 3/1 equals 27/1. Your answer is 27 over 1.(writes down)

A2: Thanks for helping me!

The Next Day

A3: Here is your test _________.

A2: Ya! I got an A+ on my test!
