Answer Key Included
Teaching Duration 2 Weeks


Division Unit (BRAND NEW) contains over 60 pages of material specifically designed for students with special learning needs, especially autism.


This is an introductory unit on division and addresses the process of division in a visual and simplified but rigorous way for students with diverse learning needs to make meaningful and authentic connections to the material.


Students will practice single-digit division using models. (Does NOT address remainders):


  1. Students will first practice making and drawing equal sets.
  2. Students will first practice making and drawing arrays.
  3. Students will practice finding equivalent expressions as a way to better understand what division actually means
  4. Students will solve division problems with the aid of visual structure and differentiation that is slowly faded.


Finally, many of the division activities include more than one version, suggestions for differentiation, and options for presentation.


This unit includes digital versions of the activities. There are 2 sets. The first set requires a small amount of typing. The second set is differentiated in color and is completely click and drag.

Much of what I have learned about curriculum development is incorporated in these units. For example, do not be afraid of repetition. It is critical that students with significant disabilities get to experience material over several days to be able to fully assimilate what is being taught. Also, adding visual supports to your printables and class activities helps students be able to pay more attention to the content you are presenting rather than the mechanics of what is expected. Finally, ask questions. Good questions!! Even when learning about division, we can ask students questions that will push them to think more deeply than before.
