Dividing by Fractions, An Animation, Partition Division

I added captions!

The video is an animated explanation of dividing by fractions.  This article was the inspiration: Making Sense of Partitive and Quotitive Division: A Snapshot of Teachers’ Pedagogical Content Knowledge by Anne Roche, Australian Catholic University,  and Doug Clarke, Australian Catholic University, . Teachers and students understand 8 / 2. But 8 / (.5) can be more difficult.

The process of dividing 8 by 2 is partition division. Dividing 8 by 0.5 is best done with partition division.
