Classroom Instruction:

  1. Begin by explaining to students that they are going to expand their knowledge of division and learn how to draw and use an array to solve division problems.
  2. While reading the content pages, reinforce vocabulary and give students additional examples of division problems in order to help them reinforce the algorithm. Use the additional resources to enhance understanding.
  3. Introduce the notes on multidigit arithmetic division. Have students practice problems with and without remainders.  Use the additional resources to enhance understanding.
  4. Have students practice problems with a partner using various strategies.
  5. Follow Activity page with students. Have students play the game in groups of 2 – 4.  Model a practice round so that students understand how to play.
  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 which method they prefer to divide four digit numbers.
