Time to Reflect – Unit 4
1. Tell why you think it is important to be able to divide numbers. For what kind of problems do you need to use division?
It's important because of the many times when you have a certain amount of things and a certain amount of people to give them to. When you have three people at dinner and you need to split the bill. Or you have three candy bars and 3,000 people to give to them. All are situations where division is absolutely necessary.
2. Tell what part of this unit was the most difficult for you and why. Describe what you did to overcome any difficulties you had.
I had particular trouble with partial quotients. I kept on forgetting when and where to put the numbers on the side. After a while however it got more or less in my brain without me doing anything. I guess it just fit because I was doing so much.
