Reflection: Modeling Deciding Where to Start Dividing - Section 3: Group or Partner Activity


Students being able to model division gives them a conceptual understanding.  In previous lessons, we used place value blocks along with our modeling and multiplication facts.  However, the students need to be able to divide without using place value blocks because most of them do not have place value blocks at home to practice on the skill.  Therefore, drawing models will be an option that the students can use at all times.
