Everyday Math-Unit 4 Overview

Unit 4 focuses on the most common uses of multiplication and division--involving multiples of equal groups, equal sharing, and equal grouping. In second grade, students worked with multiplication and division number stories and were introduced to the basic multiplication and division facts. This work is continued in third grade with the expectation that students will use arrays, mental arithmetic, pencil and paper algorithms, and calculators to solve problems involving 2 and 3 digit whole numbers by 1 digit whole numbers and describe the strategies used by the end of the school year. They are also expected to demonstrate automaticity with multiplication facts through 10 x 10. Unit 4 has three main areas of focus:

*To model and solve multiplication number stories and practice multiplication facts

*To model and solve division stories and practice division facts

*To explore the links between multiplication and division
