Big Ideas: When using the standard algorithm to solve a division word problem, it is important to properly interpret the remainder. This task requires students to use the standard algorithm for division. Students should get a remainder when computing but they need to interpret the remainder in order to correctly solve this task. The standard requires students to have fluency using the standard algorithm and this task should be one of many that students encounter throughout the year. After working with area models and partial quotients, students should have a stronger understanding of the concept of division. It is important to connect these strategies with the standard algorithm and stress the efficiency of the standard algorithm. Vocabulary: dividend, divisor, quotient, remainder, rounding Special Materials: grid paper (optional)
