# Lesson overview:Solving multiplication and division problems using the bar model

- In this lesson, we will learn how to use the bar model when solving multiplication and division problems. We will analyse word problems to select the most important part of the text and determine the maths required, then translate this into a suitable bar model to help us solve the problem.
