Description

Teach the application of the long division algorithm to solving multidigit division problems with our interactive Long Division Lesson Plan.  This lesson reiterates associated vocabulary and provides ample practice opportunities to ensure understanding.  Implementing a game to drive continued practice, students get immediate feedback on their answer accuracy; while leveraging peer learning in small groups solidifies confidence and understanding.

Sample Classroom Procedure / Teacher Instruction

  1. Begin by explaining to students that division often requires we use larger numbers which would make an array or repeated subtraction very complicated. Give an example of drawing 450 dots or drawing 1,200 people at a concert – explain how mathematicians needed another way to solve division problems and they developed long division.
  2. While reading the content pages, reinforce vocabulary and give students additional examples of long division problems in order to help them practice the new algorithm. Use the additional resources to enhance understanding.
  3. Introduce the notes on long division. Have students practice problems with and without remainders. Use the additional resources to enhance understanding.
  4. Allow students time to grasp the steps of the long division algorithm. Have students practice problems while repeating the steps out loud.
  5. Follow Activity page with students. Have students work in pairs or groups of three to play the game. Use index cards to make division problems for the game. Write the problem on the top and the answer on the reverse side so that students can check to see if they got the answer correct.
  6. Distribute Practice page. Check and review the students’ responses as a class.
  7. Distribute the Homework page. Have students work a few problems at the beginning of the next class to reinforce the algorithm.
  8. In closing, ask students to repeat the four steps used in long division.
  9. Allow for responses and discussion.

I was very happy with this resource as I am not a teacher but have recently found myself having to supply at the school where I work. Thank you for the help.

Great start!

I recently found this site when looking for math resources to help my daughter practice and improve in the areas she is struggling with in school. I was so impressed at being able to obtain the lessons for free; as a single parent it is such a constant challenge to keep up with everything in life and provide adaquetly for your child. Thank you for helping me be able to help my daughter with her learning & future!
