Our Multiplication/Division Relationships lesson plan helps your students understand the relationships between multiplication and division. Multiplication and division are inverse operations, meaning opposite and inverse operations ‚Äòundo’ each other. The lesson reinforces this concept for students by having them list fact families. The lesson also suggests students consider multiplication as repeated addition, and division as repeated subtraction. During this lesson, students are asked to use the “repeated addition” and “repeated subtraction” methods to solve given problems. Students are also asked to solve additional practice problems and create fact families in order to demonstrate their understanding.
At the end of the lesson, students will be able to multiply and divide up to 100 using strategies that reinforce the relationship between multiplication and division.
