Do your students know what the term 'quotient' is?

Quotient is the answer for a division problem! Just like 'sum' is the answer for an addition problem, 'difference' is the answer for a subtraction problem, and 'product' is the answer for a multiplication problem. I found this one handy forum question about the names for the other sides of the equation too.

As a child, I remember I used to love the sound of the word "quotient" (I also loved maths which probably helped!)

ReplyDeleteFun! I know I liked unusual words as a child as well. It just so happened that q is one of the letters of the alphabet with not as many words so almost any word that starts with it seems kind of special : )
