This activity helps students see the relationship between division with manipulatives, area models, partial quotients and the standard division algorithm using three- and four-digit dividends and one digit divisors.
If you like this product, there is an expanded version which includes SEVEN student sheets and teacher keys plus TWO blank templates at
These worksheets reinforce decimal operations of multiplication, addition and subtraction.
Use whole group, small group, or in centers after modeling.
Your students will understand the concept of decimal division with these activities!
