Division of Integers

The 12th segment in a 25-segment series looks at the division of integers and how the signs of the dividend and divisor affect the sign of the quotient. Pupils start with multiplication and division facts of whole numbers and create the corresponding facts for the set of integers. They then use the patterns to develop rules for dividing integers.
