Developing fluency with long division is a big step in the education of young mathematicians. With the support of base ten blocks, learners deepen their understanding of the operation in this elementary math instructional activity. Although it indicates students should have prior knowledge with the long division algorithm, base ten blocks can also be used to build an understanding of division prior to introducing the algorithm. Despite being designed for fifth graders, this instructional activity can be easily adapted to support younger students with developing an understanding of division.
- Guided practice questions include division word problems
- Learners are given a chance to work collaboratively to solve problems, sharing their solutions with the rest of the class
- Presents five clear steps for children to follow when modeling division with base ten blocks
