Big Ideas: The standard algorithm is a quick and efficient strategy to use when dividing multi-digit whole numbers. This task requires students to solve a 4-digit by 2-digit division equation using the standard algorithm. Students may need assistance setting up the equation when computing the numbers. After students are comfortable using different strategies for dividing, it is important to start making connections to the standard algorithm. While students work on this task, guide them in making connections to what exactly they are doing when using the standard algorithm. Vocabulary: standard algorithm, partial products, dividend, divisor, quotient Special Materials: Optional: -Grid paper
