Lesson objective: Use the partial quotients strategy to find quotients.

This lesson helps to build fluency with the partial quotients division strategy. An emphasis on efficiency is used here because it supports the idea that partial quotients is more efficient that the rectangular array and area models for division. This work develops students' understanding that the meaning of division is always the same.

Students engage in Mathematical Practice 7 (Look for and make use of structure ) as they divide using the partial quotients strategy.

Key vocabulary:

• area model
• dividend
• division
• divisor
• partial quotients
• quotient
• rectangular array
• remainder
