Division

Just a start, but this is following on from a twitter conversation in which a few people helped me to improve my lesson plan and worksheet on dividing fractions.

In the long term, I plan to share all my lessons which lead up to this point, hence the first three ‘topics’, but they’re not yet good enough to be worth sharing!
