Dugongs Do Division and Multiplication

Dugongs Do Division and Multiplication


Dugongs (sometimes referred to as sea cows) eat sea grasses from the sea floor. To be sure they're eating the right amount of sea grasses, they employ the essential skills of division and multiplication.


Through in-class activities and independent practice, students will:

  • Choose friendly equations (partial quotients), a rectangular array, and the distributive property to mentally solve multi-digit division problems
  • Solve multi-digit multiplication problems by creating friendly partial products represented on an open array
  • Solve multi-digit multiplication problems by representing optimal partial products on an open array
  • Compose arrays and use the distributive property to solve multi-digit multiplication problems
