How to divide large numbers
How to divide large numbers

Explain how to divide large numbers (like the picture above) using words.  Your reader/audience is a “new to our class” 4th-grade student. Explain each step in the partial quotient process and what each number means.

You can explain the meaning of each part of the problem by using a word problem that matches the equation 95 divided by 4 (shown in the picture), or you can use the problem you just solved on your whiteboard.  Make sure you show all the work as you go and explain your thinking.

Do your best to use these words in your directions…

divisor

dividend

quotient

remainder
