Lesson 20

Estrategias para dividir

Lesson Purpose

The purpose of this lesson is for students to analyze representations and strategies for finding quotients with larger numbers and to divide within 100.

Lesson Narrative

Previously, students use base-ten blocks, diagrams, and other representations or strategies to reason about division within 100. In this lesson, they extend and formalize this work to include writing a series of equations to find the value of a quotient.

In analyzing various strategies to represent division, students reinforce their understanding of place value, properties of operations, and the relationship of multiplication and division.
