• Chapter 6:
    Multiplication, Division, Data & Fractions 
  • Overview 

    The instruction in Unit 6 is designed to help students understand, in ways that are both deep and robust, the many connections between multiplication and division. Each module in the unit is rich with opportunities to model and solve problems, share and explain strategies, play games, and apply computational skills and concepts in a variety of contexts. 

    Skills Across the Grade Levels 

    The table below shows the major skills and concepts addressed in Unit 6. It is meant to provide a quick snapshot of the expectations for students’ learning during this unit, as well as information about how these skills are addressed in Bridges Grade 3, elsewhere in Grade 4 including Number Corner (NC), and also in Grade 5.
