Videos and lessons to help Grade 3 students learn to interpret whole-number quotients of whole numbers, e.g., interpret 56 ÷ 8 as the number of objects in each share when 56 objects are partitioned equally into 8 shares, or as a number of shares when 56 objects are partitioned into equal shares of 8 objects each. For example, describe a context in which a number of shares or a number of groups can be expressed as 56 ÷ 8.

Common Core: 3.OA.2

- I can explain division as a set of objects partitioned into an equal number of shares.
- I can identify parts of division equations (dividend, divisor, and quotient)
- I can interpret quotients in division ( 32 ÷ 4 = 8 can be 4 groups with 8 items in each group or 8 groups with 4 items )
