Multiplication and Division
Multiplication as Groups
Visualizing multiplicaion from arrays. Note: in 3rd grade, we require students to write multiplication equations as the number of rows by the number of collumns.
Tape Diagrams are a way for students to model multiplication and division. The diagrams help to visualize the groups and the number in each group as well as the total.
Intro to Division
Dividing is easy! Give it a try for yourself!
2nd Quarter Test Prep
By the end of the 2nd Quarter, the students should be able to complete multi-step word problems using all four operations. Illustrating the problem will be very helpful!
Multiplicaion vs. Division
If you know multiplication, you'll be able to understand division! (And vise versa)
Measurement and Data
Bar Graphs are an easy way to visually represent amounts. They are simple to compare and to read. Creating bar graphs is more difficult. Find a reasonable scale to use before you start!
Intro to Fractions!
Fractions are equal parts of a whole. If your parts are not equal in area, you cannot count it as a fraction.
Pictographs use symbols to represent and compare different amounts. Be careful, often an object will represent more than 1 of something. Be on the look out for a key!
More than One Equal Part
To find a fraction, you must count the number of parts you are identifying, then you must count the number in all. The number you count (numerator) goes over the total number of parts (denominator).
