Here is the video for completing long division with 2digit divisors. I hope you find it helpful.
This week, we will be completing Topic FourDividing by 1Digit Divisors
I will be teaching the students two different ways to do division, especially for Topic FiveDividing by 2Digit Divisors
VOCABULARY
DIVISORThis is the number you are dividing by. It is the second number if the problem is written like 24 divided by 2. The 2 is the divisor. If the problem is written in the standard format, the divisor is the number outside the box.
DIVIDENDThis is the number being divided. It is the first number written, if the problem is written like 24 divided by 2. The 24 is the dividend. If the problem is written in standard form, the dividend is the number inside the box. The dividend is also usually the largest number
QUOTIENTThis is the answer to the division problem.
REMAINDERAfter you divide, multiply back, and subtract, you check the number you now have. If the number is smaller than the divisor and you have no digits to bring down, this number becomes the remainder.
The first method uses the acronym: DOES MCDONALD'S SERVER CHEESE BURGERS REGULARLY
The D represents "divide".
The M represents "multiply back".
The S represents "subtract".
The C represents "check".
The B represents "bring down".
The R represents "remainder".
These are the steps to solving a division problem. The tricky part is when you get to "check". If the answer after you subtract is smaller than the divisor, you need to go to "B" or bring down the next digit. If the answer after subtracting is greater than the divisor, you immediately go back to "D" or divide and begin again.
The second method is a new way to complete long division. It is called 1248 Divide. I have attached the Power Point for how to do this below. I will be showing it to the students and they will then be able to use it, if they wish.
