6.1 multiplication and division number stories
Often times when we solve realworld puzzles, the problem is not just given to us. We have to read through or even sometimes find out information, determine which pieces of information are important and which are not, and then create our own number sentence problem that we can then solve. Number stories help us to accept challenges and also help us to persevere and use both logic and creative ability. After all, it feels good to face a challenge and have success when we complete it! It makes a boring day interesting and a good challenge can even revitalize all your senses.
PUZZLE: There are 28 chairs in the classroom and 4 rows of chairs. How many chairs are in each row?
Step 1: We want to know how many chairs are in each row. We will use the letter "c" to represent this unknown. Step 2: We need to use the fact that there are 28 total chairs and 4 rows of chairs to solve this problem. Step 3: We can use division to find the answer. 28 chairs must be divided equally by 4 rows. The number model for this would look like 28 ÷ 4 = c Step 4: 28 ÷ 4 = 7 Step 5: Answer: There are 7 chairs in each row. 28 ÷ 4 = 7

6.2 strategies for division
The Hiawatha 4th graders decided to have a fundraiser to raise money for the Capital Area Humane Society. They ordered a bunch of chocolates, packaged them up into boxes, and sold them. On the last day of the fundraiser they had 189 chocolate candies left, but they were not sure if they had enough boxes. Each box held 21 chocolate candies. How many boxes did they need?
What division strategy can you use to solve this problem? 
Multiplication / Division Diagram
"What number times 21 equals 189?" or "189 divided by what number equals 21?" b x 21 = 189 or 189 / b = 21 Use Manipulatives Since we don't actually have 189 chocolates to put 21 into as many boxes as possible, we can use something else to stand in for our chocolates... like counting cubes. If we take 189 and divide them up into groups of 21, we get 9! Draw a Picture It can be very helpful to visualize a problem in order to more easily figure out how to solve it. Using paper and pencil, we can draw the189 candies, and then divide them up into 21 candies per box. When we are done, we can just count the boxes. Use Smaller "Friendly Numbers" I know that 20 x 5 is 100, so then 21 x 5 is just 5 more so it is 105. I also know that 20 x 10 is 200 so the number of boxes must be between 5 and 10. So If I take my 5 x 21 and + 21 + 21 + 21 + 21 I will get 189. That is a total of 9 boxes. Using Multiples If we simply count the number of 21s it takes to reach our total, we can figure out how many boxes we would need. This can easily be done using multiples. 
20 x 5 = 100 + (1 x 5) = 105
105 + 21 = 126 126 + 21 = 147 147 + 21 = 168 168 + 21 = 189

When Mr. C visited South Africa, he went on a safari at a game park.
A game park is a protected area of land where wild animals can live safe from being hunted. When the safari started, Mr. C was really excited to see the giraffes. The guide explained that since the animals move all around the park, it can be difficult to know exactly where they are. Mr. C got worried. How were they ever going to find the giraffes? It was a really big park! The guide told him not to worry because they used math to solve the problem! The guide pulled out a map of the park and showed Mr. C how they had divided it into smaller sections using a grid and labeled each axis with numbers starting with 0 at the origin. This way, they could track and record the locations of the different animals at different points in the day and look for patterns. The guide said that around noon the giraffes generally head over to the point (8,6) because there are acacia leaves there  which is a giraffes favorite snack!
