We are learning about different types of animals that live in BC. Try this Animal Classification Game!
We are learning to divide numbers that are two or three digits this month! Students are being shown how to divide with the answer down the side. Some teachers call it The Forgiving Method, others use the name Partial Quotients Method. Here is an example, but please scroll down to see a video too!
This method of long division can be easier for students to learn. It gives them a deeper understanding of the standard algorithm rather than just memorizing steps.
This video shows the method in action:
Here is another example:
There is more than one way to do long division. Children are encouraged to use a method that makes sense for them. If a child already knows how to divide with a different method, they may use that as well.
I found a math game called Math Racer that is free today, May 9th, and it might be free for a day or two. (Click on the name to find the link.) You can play it on an iPad or iPhone. We are working on division in class right now, so try it out! (Make sure you ask your parent’s permission first!)
