Teaching Long Division – A 77 page SMART Notebook Unit for 4.NBT.1 & 4.NBT.6
A complete unit on Dividing Whole Numbers using Long Division!
Common Core Aligned!
Broken down into 7 easy to follow topics:
Dividend, Divisor, Quotient – Students learn how to label the parts of a division problem correctly. They learn the divisibility rules (student card included for you to copy and laminate). Students also practice using a calculator to test the divisibility of numbers.
Dividing Whole Numbers – Step-by-Step directions for dividing whole numbers using the DMS Loop method: Divide, Multiply, Subtract (student card included for you to copy and laminate). Lots of practice available for whole group, or have students complete the problems independently at their desks.
Remainders – Students continue working on long division with and without the use of the DMS Loop method. This is optional for you to use. Remainders are introduced with pictures first, and then practice problems are given for whole group or independent work.
Estimating Quotients – In this SMART Notebook activity students learn the relationship between the words Estimate and Round. They practice rounding numbers to the nearest 10 and then dividing. Several practice problems and word problems are given for whole group or independent work.
Division Word Problems – This section starts with a quick review of labeling a division problem correctly using: divisor, dividend and quotient. Six word problems are given for whole group or independent practice. All word problems include division.
Fact Families – Students are introduced to multiplication and division fact families. Four fact family houses are provided for visual learners. Student can manipulate the numbers to make their own fact families. A dice game is included where students roll the dice to find 2 numbers. Students have to multiply to find the product, and then start forming their fact families based on the 3 numbers they have.
Going Deeper – This section is devoted to multiple step word problems. A problem solving strategies pencil is provided to guide students through the problem solving process. A Pencil Strategy bookmark is included for you to copy and laminate for students to keep at their desk. Six multiple step word problems are provided for whole group or independent practice. All word problems include division.
Review – This section is a review of all topics included in the SMART Notebook Unit. Students are asked to identify the definition to division vocabulary, label a division problem correctly, answer questions on notebook paper or index card, give examples of divisibility rules, design a division problem and write the steps for solving it, estimate quotients, solve simple word problems, practice finding fact families, and solve multiple step division word problems using the pencil strategy. The review section includes 15 slides.
