Big Ideas: We can divide large numbers by using our knowledge of division facts and the base-10 system. This task builds on students' knowledge of place value, basic division facts, and finding the area of a rectangular object. Students need to find the length of a missing length of a rectangle using division. This task uses "friendly numbers" where the dividend and divisor are powers of 10 and each contain compatible division facts. This task is the foundation for students to eventually divide larger whole numbers using estimation, picture models, and the standard algorithm. Vocabulary: multiples/powers, basic facts, place value, dividend, divisor, quotient, area Special Materials: grid paper (optional)
