Hi my name is Pano. Today we Grade 4 are very excited about our field trip.
We have 150 students which we will divide into groups consisting of 5 students each.
Teacher asks her smartest student Pano to help her divide the students. Lets see how they go about with the division
150 divided by 5 will be 30
Well done Pano! When we divide 150 students with 5 students for each group, we get 30 groups.
Teacher is very impressed with Pano's answer. She gives him another puzzle. Let see if Pano can conclude with the right answer and finally go to the museum.
We can multiply the number of chaperones which is 2 by the no of groups which is 30 to give us the total number of chaperones required
Pano, for each group we need atleast 2 chaperone. Can you guess how Many chaperons are needed for 30 groups
Teacher decides to divide the students into groups of 5 students each.
Teacher asks Pano how many groups they will have if they divide 150 students with 5 students in each group. Pano thinks a while and then does his calculation.
30 groups are a lot for 1 teacher to handle. So teacher suggests there be 2 chaperones for each of these 30 groups.
