Divide Three- And Four-Digit Dividends By Two-Digit Divisors


The standards specifically require students to find quotients “using strategies based on place value” (5.NBT.6). When dividing, students are decomposing units just as they have done when subtracting since Grade 2: “I don’t have enough tens to subtract, so I’ll change 1 hundred for 10 tens.” When dividing, they also change each larger unit that cannot be divided for smaller units: “I’ll change 8 remaining tens for 80 ones.”
