Math summer camp
Division in Relationship to Multiplication
One way is to show your children how division and multiplication relate, and there are many different ways to do this. You can, of course, use fact family triangles. These
Another fun way is to let your children use manipulatives and have them sort items to show multiplication and then division problems. Activities like these task cards, challenge children to solve simple multiplication or division problems with manipulatives….and at the same time, they are developing algebra skills.
Any time you can get children to model a math skill….I’m all for it!
And there are a few different ways you can do this with division.
- Repeated subtraction is one way. If I’m solving 24 divided by 8 I can subtract 8 from 24 repeatedly until I get to 0. 24 – 8 = 16, 16 – 8 = 8, 8 – 8 = 0 I subtracted 8 three times, so 24 divided by 8 equals 3.
- Arrays – Multiplication is often taught using arrays, so this a great way to work through division. If I’m dividing 15 by 3 I count out 15 manipulatives and make a row of three. I continue making a row of three until I don’t have any manipulatives left, and then I count up the rows. I have five rows, so 15 divided by 3 equals 5.
- Making Groups – This is the one that is most often used. Simply count out manipulatives to equal the dividend, make circles base on the divisor, and then divide up the manipulatives into the groups. The number of manipulatives in each group is the answer.
- Number Lines – Number lines are a great way to build number sense in adding, subtracting, multiplying, and division. And activities like these word problems get children using the number lines as well as many of the other activities listed above.
Ice Cream Math
After your children have been exposed to the division, then it is time to practice their facts and work on memorization with activities like these popscicle puzzles.
You can simply have them work through the puzzles, or you can make it a competition if your child likes that type of thing.
They can work to beat their previous time or beat a partners time.
Either way, getting them to repeatedly answer division problems reinforces the answer and will help them begin to memorize their division facts.
