Hi Hi Hi. I haven't posted anything in a while, just that article on peer pressure (long story). So, my teacher keeps giving me an F for all my work on division array models and here's a pic on two of the array models. I thought I had written the right answer, but my teacher marked it as wrong. See?, take a look.
So, I looked at the array model and she asked me to write the division problem it represents. The trick she taught us was to look at the array model first (DUH!) and count how many little boxes/circles (whatever) were there in total, I counted. See! For both of these models there are 10 boxes in total, now, she asked me to count how many groups there are. Two groups for both! And what she means with groups, is you know there's like a line in the middle that's separating the two groups?, that. And lastly, as you can see, for the first problem, there's no answer filled out, but my Google Drive says that I can edit in like-15 minutes later, so just pretend you see a 5 for both of those answers.
Now for the answer I just had to divide: 10 ÷ 2 = 5, right? She also said if I don't know, I can also just count how many boxes are in each group, there are 5 in each group! Now, I thought I did a wonderful job on this assignment, but the day after, my teacher graded the assignment and gave it back to me so I could work on it again and see my mistake.
But I don't see the mistake! And I'm gonna get an F on my test if I'm not ready, please, please, can someone help me, I'll give you a free shoutout on KidzNet or KidzTalk (btw, you know, I'm actually the girl behind the Media4U project, so if you want a KN shoutout then I'll just use my Media4U account)
Also, if your like "what?! that's such an easy division model"! and your wondering what grade I'm in, actually, 4th..so..yeah, I know most of the kids here are like what-11, 12, 13, 14, old kids. And just letting you know, you get 5 free shoutouts and a bonus Q&A interview on Media4U if u answer, please, please, just answer!
