This is an awesome foldable for any interactive math journal. Understanding the complexities of long division is difficult for students. This foldable will simplify the process and ensure that they are long division professionals in no time at all.
This foldable breaks the basics of long division with multi digit divisors down into several simple, focused, and progressive steps. The foldable starts by teaching students that the easiest way to solve long division with multi digit divisors is to make their “tools” or all the facts for the divisor form 1 to 9. Next, it quickly reviews the basic steps for long division---multiply, subtract, bring down, and start over until you have a remainder. Finally, the book walks students through the process of checking their answer through the inverse operation of multiplication which perfectly fits into the 8 mathematical practices for the common core. The steps are solved, the example uses a real life situation, and allows students to think through why it is a division problem. This is the perfect tool for any struggling student!
