Lesson: The Division Symbol: Sharing Equally Mathematics • 3rd Grade
In this lesson, we will learn how to use the division symbol to write equations to find the number of things in each group when we have 2, 3, 4, 5, or 10 equal groups.
Sample Question Videos
There are 14 carrots.
The carrots will be shared equally between 7 rabbits.
Each rabbit will get carrots.
Find the missing number.
There are 20 children.
After making 4 equal groups, there are children in each group.
Which division equation shows what we did?
After making 2 equal groups, use the division symbol to write an equation that shows how many children will be in each group.
Both of these problems are solved by finding .
Pick the problem whose answer is the number of groups.
