Big Ideas: Multiplication and division are inverse operations. This lesson builds on students' prior knowledge of multiplication and division being represented by equal groups. In this lesson, students will develop a further understanding of the relationship between multiplication and division by examining ways that the two operations work inversely. By the end of this lesson, students should have a conceptual understanding of the connection between multiplication and division. This task serves as a critical foundation for future work with operations and algebraic thinking. Vocabulary: multiplication, division, factor, product, dividend, divisor, quotient Special Materials: Counters (optional)
