Long Division with 1-Digit Divisors

Long Division with 1-Digit Divisors

You and your child can practice solving long division problems wiht the partial quotient method. If your child is stuck, work together to read through the example on one of the partial quotient activities. As you and your child work with this conceptually-based model, talk about place value and estimation. This strategy proves challenging at first, but it ultimately helps kids "see" the different parts of a long division problem.
Remind your fourth graders that division is a "sharing" operation where objects are shared (or divided) into a number of groups of equal number. Integrate activities that assess their understanding of both the standard algorithm and conceptually-based models. The partial quotient strategy, for example, is a great way for kids to use mental math and estimation when solving for a quotient!
