NYS Math Grade 4, Module 3, Lesson 20 Problem Set
1. Alfonso solved a division problem by drawing an area model.
a. Look at the area model. What division problem did Alfonso solve?
b. Show a number bond to represent Alfonso’s area model. Start with the total and then show how the total is split into two parts. Below the two parts, represent the total length using the distributive property and then solve.
5. Solve 72 ÷ 6 using an area model and the standard algorithm.
2. Solve 45 ÷ 3 using an area model. Draw a number bond and use the distributive property to solve for the unknown length.
