# Bar Models-Mult.& Div.

## Students understand multiplication can be represented by adding equal groups.

Students can transition to creating a visual representation (bar models) using Unifx Cubes as groups (boxes, bags, people,etc). Each cube represents the SAME amount..students will use repeated addition to find the total.

## Students have a clear understanding that multiplication is represented by using EQUAL groups.

GIVEN: Total and number of groups FIND: How many in each group.

## Students will count on EQUAL groups to achieve the total.

Given: Total, how many in each group and some of the groups.

Goal: To find how many groups in all.

Students will use the visual support given to find the number of groups needed.

Students will use cubes to count on to get to the total.

Students will draw the missing cubes.

Students will use both the related multiplication fact and repeated addition.

'8 groups of 3 make 24.'

'3+3+3+3+3+3+3+3=24'

## Great video...very easily our students can see the bar models

* may use Unifx Cubes
