When I first begin teaching my third grade students multiplication and division, we learn multiple strategies for both operations.
After I have taught both multiplication and division for a few weeks, I find it very helpful for students to have the strategies side by side in their notebooks to compare the two operations.
This mini lesson or interactive notebook page helps students recognize the similarities and differences between multiplication and division. It helps students realize that the two operations are the opposite of one another.
