CCSS Standard:
Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.

Sharpen division skills at home

We have a YouTube division playlist! The five-video series clues students in on everything from dividends to long division with remainders. (And they are short, ranging from one and a half to three and a half minutes each.) These videos can be played on any device in class or at home.

How to approach video lessons

  1. Explain why division is important to your class or your own kids.
  2. Once kids have watched a video, it’s a good idea to review the division concepts that the video talked about.
  3. Have the children write down key words that appear in the video (e.g. quotient, dividend) and their definitions for review during their session and in their next math study session. (Math literacy helps with identifying math terms; textbooks will start to make sense.)
  4. Play Making Camp Premium to practice division with single digit numbers or review their multiplication facts.
