Exploring the Idea of Division

Unit 4: Introduction to Basic Division
Lesson 1 of 6

Objective: Students will observe and try to model slightly above-level division problems as they practice expressing math questions and possible solutions in mathematical terms.

Big Idea: The cognitive dissonance experienced when encountering novel, out of level division problems will lead to more deeply internalized understanding of the basic concepts of division to be mastered at the 3rd grade level.
