How to divide

This week we are reviewing how to divide multi-digit numbers using the standard algorithm and the ladder/column method.  We will start with dividing by single digit divisors and move towards double digits.  

 What are the steps to completing a division problem?

1. D= divide                            D= Does

2. M= multiply                         M= McDondalds

3. S= subtract                         S= Serve

4. B=bring down/up                B=Burgers

5. R=repeat or remainder       R=Raw
