Mathematics Unit 9: Equal Groups
Unit Essential Question: How can we show an understanding of the relationship between multiplication and division?
We start this math unit by focusing and developing the idea that multiplication involves a number of equalsized groups. Students will apply this knowledge by solving multiplication problems in familiar contexts. Students will generate simple story problems to help them visualize and represent the solution. Students will use this knowledge of equal groups to identify patterns that arise because of relationships between numbers and their multiples. They continue to develop visual images that support their understanding of multiplication as they are introduced to arrays.
