Fact Family Multiplication and Division
Focusing on Fact Families is a helpful strategy for learning the relationship between multiplication and division. Some of my student seem to have an aversion to division. When I show them that knowing how to multiply can help them divide, they see it as a short cut. Really, it helps develop basic algebraic understanding.
When I help older students, I find that students that used fact families to understand this relationship between multiplication and division, have a better foundation for things like order of operations and algebra.
