Key Facts & Information
- At the end of the lesson, students will be able to understand the relationship with factors and its product using division. Learners will also successfully be able to show division as an unknown factor.
A NOTE FOR THE TEACHER
- When teaching division as an unknown-factor, try the following in your lesson:
- So far, students have learned how to do multiplication. They have also learned how to use an array. Using this method it’s time to get students thinking about division.
- Go over factors and products using visual illustrations of an array.
- Remember, an array is a set of objects arranged in equal groups or rows.
- Through the array, students relate the unknown factor in multiplication to the quotient in division. They use arrays to write multiplication equations and find unknown factors, then write division equations where the quotient represents the same as the unknown factor.
- Place 8 counters on the table. Ask the learner to use an array to illustrate the counters. Remind the learner that an array is a set of objects arranged in equal groups or rows.
- Tell the learner we have 8 counters and we want to divide it by 2, therefore…
- By arranging the 8 counters in two rows, the learner will share the 8 counters equally. From prior knowledge, they will see that in the 2 rows there will be 4 columns.
