Student Outcomes

  • Students recognize that division is the reverse process of multiplication, and that integers can be divided provided the divisor is not zero.  If p and   q are integers, then - (p/q) = -p/q = p/-q .
  • Students understand that every quotient of integers (with a non-zero divisor) is a rational number and divide signed numbers by dividing their absolute values to get the absolute value of the quotient.  The quotient is positive if the divisor and dividend have the same signs and negative if they have opposite signs.
