Lesson 10

Multiplication and Division

Lesson Purpose

The purpose of this lesson is for students to use a variety of representations to illustrate the relationship between multiplication and division to develop fluency with division within 100.

Lesson Narrative

In previous units, students learned the meaning of multiplication and division and understood division as an unknown-factor problem. They have worked to develop fluency with multiplication within 100. In this lesson, they continue that work by reinforcing their understanding of the relationship between multiplication and division.

In the first activity, students are given a card with an equation or a diagram and asked to find another student whose card represents the same situation or quantities. Then, they create an additional diagram and a situation that matches their division equation. Students then view and compare the diagrams and the situations that their classmates created in a gallery walk.

If students need additional support with the concepts in this lesson, refer back to Unit 4, Section B in the curriculum materials.
