Division Introduction: Divide into Groups
The first step
toward learning division is to make smaller groups from a large group. So, if we are
teaching the problem 6 divided by 2, we need for students to ask themselves - How many
groups of 2 are in 6? To get the answer they circle each group of two and then count the
circles to get the answer. Since there are three circled groups the answer is three. |
