## Visualizing Division!

Here are some cards that I have been working on because students struggle so much with division. With these cards they get to visualize the different types of division problems. They can be printed back to back. Have a look! I’ll be releasing more soon!

## Flashcard Mania!

Here are some flashcards that have a visual representation and teach the commutative property. So often we talk about it just being the same thing…but really you must contextualize the problem. If you work at a restaurant and you have 3 groups of 7 people, that is very different than having 7 groups of 3 people. These cards help students to see that! They also are double sided, so students can see the relationship between the facts. In many countries this is how they teach the facts. The research says that we should teach the commutative facts together. In this way students have less facts to learn. So for example, when they get to 2 x 7 they also learn 7 x 2 so by the time they are learning the 7’s, they start at 7 x 7 because they know all the other facts in the table because they learned them along the way.
