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
