DIVISION

The lambs are about to be born. Nathaniel's brother, Benjamin, arrives to take the males to another pasture for a few days. Before Benjamin arrived Nathaniel had 8 sheep. Nathaniel knows that half the sheep are male. How many male sheep will Benjamin take with him?

Nathaniel and the sheep

To do this problem we must first know that "half" is ½ (one divided by two). So to calculate the number of males, we must divide the total number of sheep by 2.

don't you think there must be some way for the viewer to understand division, when s/he makes a mistake while using the flash cards?
