Lesson 13 and 14 Student Outcomes
Students write numerical expressions in two forms, dividend ÷ divisor and dividend/divisor, and note the relationship between the two.
Lesson 13 Discussion
How can we write or show 8 divided by 2?
When working with algebraic expressions, are any of these expressions or models more efficient than others?
Is 8/2 the same as 2/8?
Example 1:
Write an expression showing 1 ÷ 2 without the use of the division symbol.
From the model what can we determine?
Example 2:
Write an expression showing a ÷ 2 without the use of the division symbol.
From the model what can we determine?
When we write division expressions using the division symbol we represent
How would this look when we write division expressions using a fraction?
Example 3:
a. Write an expression showing a ÷ b without the use of the division symbol.
b. Write an expression for g divided by the quantity h plus 3.
c. Write an expression for the quotient of the quantity m reduced by 3 and 5.
Exercises
