Break down arrays and rebuild them in groups of equal numbers to understand how number families are the key to the multiplication and division.
- NGS.Math.Content.-3.OA.2 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. Describe a context in which a number of shares or a number of groups can be expressed as 56 ÷ 8.
