The divider (whole number remainders)

This unit uses three of the series of four Divider learning objects to support the students division of whole numbers where there is either no remainder or whole number remainders. The Divider encourages the students to split a division problem into parts based on known division or multiplication facts. The divider is based on a rectangular representation of division where one of the side lengths is unknown.
