I will try to show you that the expression 4/2 read four halves, is the same as four divided by two, written 4÷2
Draw a rectangle one unit high and with a base of four units across.  Draw a line across the rectangle 1/2 a unit up from the base.  The two rectangular pieces are each four divided by two.  Now insert three vertical lines at distance one, two three across the rectangle.  Each of the divided spaces, the top and the bottom,  is now displayed as four halves.
