You know your multiplication tables and are getting the hang of basic division. In this tutorial, we will journey into the world of loooong division (sometimes, referred to as "long division", but that's not as much fun to say). After this tutorial, you'll be able to divide any whole number by a single digit number. You'll also see that sometimes things don't divide evenly and you'll be left with a remainder. The fun will not stop! Common Core Standard: 4.NBT.B.6
Division isn't magic. It's perfectly logical. In this example we'll do a long division problem together and find the resulting answer (without a remainder).
Have a go at this one on your own before listening to the solution. You're doing great and we believe in you!
Divide two and three-digit numbers by a one-digit number.
Make division problems easier by thinking about place value and using the distributive property.
Decompose three and four-digit dividends to divide them by a one-digit divisor.
We can break up big division problems into smaller, easier problems. In this video, we solve 268 divided by 2 and 856 divided by 8.
We can break up big division problems into smaller, easier problems.
Do you like leftovers? (personally, we think they are delicious!). Those leftovers are like remainders in divisions problems. They're not bad. They just...are.
Let's work this division problem together. Our division is getting "longer" as the numbers get bigger, but that won't be a problem for you! Watch for the remainder.
Here we go with more long division practice. Ever wonder why we call it "long" division? What's "long" about it, anyway?
Divide 3-digit or 4-digits by 1 digit, with remainder.
