Use place value understanding and properties of operations to perform multi-digit arithmetic.
Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
Students understanding the concept of division is foremost because the algorithm just has steps to follow in division. Developing mental strategies and using models to divide first is very important. Only after establishing the conceptual understanding will the algorithm make sense.
The biggest stumbling block for students is the student not having multiplication and division facts memorized. Studies show if the student doesn’t know the fact, the steps of long division are lost. Letting a student use a multiplication is a must if your goal is for them to learn the algorithm.
