Description:

This problem allows students to explore introductory multiplication and division concepts in the context of sharing cookies ("biscuits" in the UK). Cookies are displayed in two different arrays, and students are challenged to divide them equally among two, three, five, and six people and to deal with remainders. The Teachers' Notes page offers rationale, suggestions for implementation, discussion questions, ideas for extension and support, and a printable sheet (pdf).
