Division

Division, like multiplication, has several strategies to help give our students a deep understanding of what it is. It is important for students to see that division is when we take a number and partition it into groups. We use a place value chart, with place value chips, to show how numbers can separated into groups. Partial quotient is another strategy that we use to help students solve a problem in several much simpler steps. Like multiplication, we are working with the students to break these numbers apart into pieces that they know how to work with.
