 What does division mean to you?  How do we use division in the real world? Thoughts to ponder….

Division is splitting into equal parts or groups There are 3 ways to think about division: Division as the Opposite of Multiplication Division as SharingDivision as Repeated Subtraction Find 16 2. Put your multiplication facts to work. Think… What number times 2 equals 16? 2 x 8 = 16 so, 16 2 = 8. Find 16 4. Say you have 16 starburst candies and you want to share them with 4 if your friends. How many starbursts should each friend get? Each friend will get 4 starbursts. Find 16 8. Subtract 8 from 16. Continue to subtract 8 until you reach zero. 16 – 8 = 8 8 – 8 = 8. Now count how many times you subtracted: 2 times. So, 2 is the answer.

 Joe has 270 hockey cards to arrange in 9 boxes. Each box is to hold the same number of cards. How many cards should he place in each box?
