objects in 7 groups of 5 objects each).

example, describe a context in which a number of shares or a number of
groups can be expressed as 56 ÷ 8.

 Illustrate and explain strategies including arrays, repeated addition or subtraction, and decomposing a factor.

New York State Next Generation Learning Standards:
3.OA.2

Interpret wholenumber quotients of whole numbers. e.g., Interpret 56 ÷ 8 as the number of objects in each share when 56 objects are partitioned equally into 8 shares, or as a number of shares when 56 objects are partitioned into equal shares of 8 objects each. Describe a context in which a number of shares or a number of groups can be expressed as 56 ÷ 8. 
Tennessee Academic Standards:
3.OA.A.2
