In this lesson, you will use base ten blocks and models to introduce and practice three alternative division strategies: fair sharing, area model, and partial quotients.
The lesson uses whole numbers to introduce the concept, while the anchor station has a set of whole number expressions and set of decimal expressions. All numbers stay within the fifth grade guideline of quotients to the hundredths place.
This lesson is meant to be done with your students, ideally in small groups, but is also appropriate for whole group direct instruction.
Although this lesson uses 2 digit divisors, it could also be used with fourth graders because all questions are used with models.
