Previously, students learned to interpret and write division expressions. They connected division to multiplication informally, recognizing that both operations involved equal groups. In this lesson, students analyze related multiplication and division equations to formalize the relationship between multiplication and division. In the lesson synthesis, students learn that the result in a division equation is called a quotient.
- Explain the relationship between multiplication and division equations.
- Interpret division equations and multiplication equations with a missing factor.
- Let’s connect division equations to multiplication equations.
