## Abstract

To analyze how fraction division is used in Korean mathematics textbooks, this study examined the various situations in which fraction division is applied and how the fraction division algorithm is developed. In the textbooks from the 1st curriculum to the 2015 revised curriculum, we analyzed how and in what situations fraction division is being developed, and present the results of the analysis and discussion points.
