The emphasis in this unit is on gaining proficiency with various division concepts, including properties and strategies. We will explore division as equal groups, repeated subtraction, and will connect it to multiplication. The students will solve and write several division word problems as well. Arrays will be used to help students visually see the connection between multiplication and division. The last part of the unit will focus on choosing the correct operation to work various word problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication, or division. Your child should understand division is sharing in an equal way, which means sometimes we might have a leftover. The leftover in math is called a remainder. It should be a lot of "hands on" learning.
