Dividing by 0-5

Do you remember what division is? 🤔

That’s right!

Division is breaking up a larger number into equal number of groups.

Let’s review!

What is 6 ÷ 2?

Let’s start with 6:

Now, let’s divide these 6 dots into 2 groups.

How many dots are in each group? 🤔

3!

That’s it! 6 ÷ 2 = 3. ✅

Before we look at what we can do with division facts, let’s review all of our division facts with divisors from 0 to 2.

Here are division facts with divisors from 3 to 5.

Great! 💪 Now, that you’ve reviewed division facts up to 5, we can tell whether division sentences are true or false.

Let’s try it out!

Is 8 ÷ 2 = 3 True or False?

How can we figure this out?

Do you remember that both sides of an equation must be equal to each other? 🤔

Great! Let’s find the value of the left side of the equation:

The two sides of the equation don’t equal each other!

8 ÷ 2 = 3 is False ✅

Let’s try another one!

Is 12 ÷ 4 = 3 True or False?

We start by figuring out the value of the left side of the equation:

Both sides of this equation are equal!

This means:

12 ÷ 4 = 3 is True ✅

Great work figuring out if equations are True or False. Another thing you will need to do in 3rd grade is sort equations.

Let’s try this out!

Here are a group of equations:

9 ÷ 3 = ?

12 ÷ 3 = ?

6 ÷ 2 = ?

15 ÷ 5 = ?

Now, let’s group them into:

How do we do this? First, we find the value for each of the equations!

9 ÷ 3 = 3

12 ÷ 3 = 4

6 ÷ 2 = 3

15 ÷ 5 = 3

Now, let’s put them into our table.

Great job! ✅

Let’s try one more.

Here are a group of equations:

4 ÷ 0 = ?

6 ÷ 3 = ?

10 ÷ 5 = ?

8÷ 0 = ?

Let’s group them into:

What should we do first? Divide!

4 ÷ 0 = 0

6 ÷ 3 = 2

10 ÷ 5 = 2

8 ÷ 0 = 0

Now, let’s sort them:

Great work!! 🎉 Now, you know what you can do with division equations!
