In Teaching Division Using LEGO® Bricks, Dr. Shirley Disseler has
developed activities that work to help students learn the basics
of division, using a common toy available in most classrooms and
homes—LEGO® bricks!
True understanding of division goes far beyond memorizing
facts. Modeling the process of division with LEGO® bricks helps
students visualize the math problem. We know that students learn
in many different ways. This book provides a variety of modeling
techniques using LEGO® bricks, allowing all students to experience
that “Aha! I get it!” moment.
In this book, the hands-on activities using LEGO® bricks help
students learn:
• equal shares or partitive division
• repeated subtraction or quotitive division
• multiplication and division fact families
• basic division
• two-digit division and dividing larger numbers
The book starts at the most basic concepts and focuses on
a specific topic in each chapter. Most students learn these
concepts between grades 3 – 6.
Using LEGO® bricks to model math provides a universal
language. Children everywhere recognize this manipulative.
