Students need to learn division strategies that make sense to them. This is especially critical when they start working with larger dividends.
We want students to have conceptual understanding, not just be able to follow a set of procedures.
This set of mini-posters is a great resource for them to have in their math notebooks.
The 3 strategies included with step-by-step visuals for each 3-digit dividend are:
- open number line model
- open area model
- partial quotients strategy using "friendly multiples"
