Learning objects The divider: without remainders

TLF ID L2007

Solve whole number division problems such as 156/6. Use a partitioning tool to help solve randomly generated division problems. Learn strategies to do complex arithmetic in your head. Split a division problem into parts that are easy to work with. This learning object is one in a series of four objects.

Educational details

Key learning objectives
