The Progression of Division

The Progression of Division: From Arrays and Area Models to Long Division and Beyond

Like multiplication, division is a very important concept that spans from primary and into abstraction well beyond our high school curriculum. Let’s take some time to explore where the idea of division begins, build a conceptual understanding of what it means, learn how we can visualize it and discover why this deep understanding is necessary for students to truly understand the abstract concepts they will be asked to tackle in grade 9 and 10. As always, we will approach this learning with tasks that are contextual, visual and concrete.
