Division may look like the scariest of the four arithmetic operations, but it can be surprisingly fun! Join me as we explore what division is and how it works through a mix of hands-on experiments, games and puzzles. [Lesson 1] Division: What is it? This class explores what division is, how to talk about it, and a couple of ways that mathematicians write equations. Make sure to check out the Class Materials List, because we will spend a lot of time doing practical exercises! [Lesson 2]...
This course will introduce students to the basic concepts and terminology behind division. By the end of the course students should be fully comfortable with the basic principles, terms, and simple equation formats. Students will also be familiar with the standard strategies for solving simple division equations and fully comfortable with at least 2 of these strategies.
All homework will be optional, though strongly encouraged. Practice exercises and worksheets for each lesson topic will be available for download. There will also be several flashcard sets available through the Quizlet app.
1) Students will need a set of 20 objects they can handle during each class. These can be anything from markers to Legos to hair ties. Smaller items will be better, especially for the exercises in the 3rd and 4th lesson. 2) Printouts will be available for the 3rd lesson, but students are welcome to create their own versions. Just make sure they have one of each 3) Something to write on/with will be needed during all of the lessons.
An informal assessment will be provided at the end of each class. The assessment will include areas the student did well on and provide suggestions for worksheets and flashcard sets to focus on during individual practice.
1 hour 20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
