# Represent division by grouping with multiplication and addition equations

I can represent and interpret division by grouping where there is a remainder using multiplication and addition.

## Lesson details

### Key learning points

- Objects can be divided into equal groups, sometimes with a remainder.
- Multiplication facts can be used to solve grouping problems.
- Multiplication and addition can show when a set of objects has been divided into equal groups with a remainder.

### Common misconception

When writing equations to represent part-part-whole models, children may have difficulty recording the number of groups (as this numeral is not written in the model) and revert to repeated addition.

Encourage children to articulate their thinking as they record, e.g. there are ___ groups of ___ and a remainder of ___

### Keywords

Groups - Grouping is when we divide a number of objects into equal groups. We know the total number of objects and the number of objects in each group, but we do not know how many equal groups there are.

Remainder - A remainder is the amount left over after division when the dividend does not divide exactly by the divisor.

Divided - Division means splitting into equal parts or groups. ___ is divided into groups of ___
