Division with Base 10 Numbers Math Games
In this series of games, your students will learn to find whole-number quotients of whole numbers with up to four-digit dividends and two-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. The Division with Base 10 Numbers learning objective — based on CCSS and state standards — delivers improved student engagement and academic performance in your classroom, as demonstrated by research. This learning objective directly references 5.NBT.B.6 as written in the common core national math standards.
Scroll down for a preview of this learning objective’s games and the concepts.
Decompose the dividend into base-ten units and find the quotient place by place, starting from the highest place. Illustrate and explain calculations using equations, rectangular arrays, and area models. Estimate quotients and adjust when necessary to be exact. Understand that algorithms for multiplication and division are abbreviations for reasoning about quantities. Use equations to model the greatest multiple. 745 ÷ 15 =? can be interpreted as Divide 7 hundreds, 4 tens, 5 ones equally among 15 groups, starting with hundreds using the reasoning of the distributive property.
