Big Ideas: Division is partitioning into an equal number of shares. A quotient can be interpreted as either the number of shares or the number in each share. This lesson builds on students' prior knowledge of division being represented using equal groups. In this lesson, students will develop an understanding of division as the number in each share when the total objects are partitioned into equal shares. Students will examine ways in which they can partition a number in different ways. By the end of this lesson, students should have a conceptual understanding of how to partition a number into equal shares. Vocabulary: division, partition, shares Special Materials: Counters (optional)
