Unit 1, Lesson 3# Interpret the meaning of factors - the size or the number of groups

EngageNY 60 min(s)

This lesson solidifies students' ability to differentiate the meaning of factors. Students model dividing a whole into equal groups as well as analyze equal groups in scattered configurations and arrays to determine whether factors represent the number of groups or the size of groups. They create pictures, number bonds, and multiplication equations to model their understanding.
