Number & Operations:
Division with Remainders

In Number and Operations: Division with Remainders, we visit the classroom of students learning about the nature of division by creating and solving their own story problems. This teaching focuses on laying a conceptual foundation for division before presenting a formal algorithm.

Participants in this course:

• Demonstrate the meanings of division in different contexts.
• Explore how the development of conceptual understanding grounds acquisition of efficient procedures.
• Develop questioning strategies that support student dialogue and reflection.
• Examine how student diagrams support and represent thinking.
• Explore how student dialogue about problem solving develops conceptual understanding.
