Marine Iguanas Manipulate Variables and Decimals

$48.00Price

Marine iguanas are endemic to the Galapagos Islands and are the only marine lizard species in the world. These iguanas can voluntarily stop their hearts for up to 45 minutes to deter nearby sharks. While their hearts are stopped, they practice multiplying and dividing variables and decimals. 

 

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

  • Multiply expressions with one or two variables using an array as a model
  • Divide up to a four-digit number by a two-digit number using the standard algorithm, also known as "long division"
  • Solve a division problem with decimals using the standard algorithm, also known as "long division"
