This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 11, Unit 5, Grade 7. The purpose of this activity is to understand that the division facts for rational numbers are simply a consequence of the multiplication done previously. Students work several numerical examples relating multiplication to division, and then articulate a rule for the sign of a quotient based on the signs of the dividend and divisor. Monitor for students who identify and describe the rule clearly.
