Videos, examples, solutions, 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

### Suggested Learning Target

• 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 )
Interpret whole-number quotients of whole numbers (Common Core Standard 3.OA.2)

Sharing Equally

3 OA 2 Lesson 1
I can explain division as a set of objects partitioned into equal groups.
Example:
You have 12 cookies. If you share them equally into 3 bags, how many will go into each bag? 3 OA 2 Lesson 2
I can explain division as the number of equal groups made.
Example:
You have 12 cookies. If you put 3 cookies in each bag, how many bags will you fill?
