Introduction:
Today, we will be learning about basic division. Division is a mathematical operation that allows us to break down larger numbers into smaller parts. The main symbol that we will be using when we divide is the ÷ symbol.

Lesson Outline:

- Begin with a warm up game, such as the video “Division Rap Song” (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=U_yz6Mz1RIU) to help students reinforce their understanding of the basics.

- Introduce basic division vocabulary. Have the students practice writing out the division equations for given inputs on the whiteboard. Suggested worksheet resources:

Division Practice Worksheet #2 (https://www.teach-nology.com/worksheets/math/div/index.html)

- Introduce the concept of remainders. Have the students practice writing out the division equations for given inputs on the whiteboard that result in remainders. Suggested worksheet resource:

- Introduce the concept of division with 3-digit numbers. Suggested worksheet resource:

Questioning:
Throughout the lesson, ask students questions the reinforce their understanding. For example:
- What is the ÷ symbol used for?
- When do we use division?
- How can division help us solve problems?
- What is the concept of remainders?
- How can we use division to solve problems with 3-digit numbers?

Assessment:
Test the knowledge and understanding of the students' newfound knowledge with an alternate approach to division.

Say the following statement out loud:
“I want to divide 54 by 6”

Have the students write down and solve the division equation on their own paper. Have the students share their answers with their peers and discuss.

Differentiation:

Allow students to work in pairs and assist each other as they work through the worksheets and practice division equations.

Provide alternative worksheets or resources that are tailored to individual student needs.

Plenary:

Pass out a worksheet where the students have to complete 10 division equations with no assistance from the teacher. Have the students compare their answers to the answers on the board.

Provide a video resource that the students can watch on their own time to reinforce their knowledge of division.
