The new Common Core Standards for Math prompted me to create this Decomposing the Dividend Strategy pack for use with students and with parents.
Note: This fold-up resource is now part of The BIG Bundle
. The BIG bundle has all my math fold-up resources bundled together for HUGE savings!
The Decomposing the Dividend Strategy encourages students to break the dividend into parts that can be divided easily. The long-term goal of this method is for students to solve the division problem mentally. In my experience, it will take a great deal of practice before students will master the ability to solve the problem mentally using this method. I have found that many higher achieving math students will pick up on the strategy and choose to use it.
This packet contains a tri-fold fold-up (front and back) that shows how the strategy works. It would make a wonderful resource for both students and parents. Also included is a 2-sided practice page as well as a detailed answer key.
