__Division__

In our division unit, is it important for students to be able to use the standard algorithm to find quotients using long division. However, it may be even more important for them to understand what is really happening at each step. This is why we spend time working with compatible numbers and Base 10 blocks to solve division problems before we jump into just memorizing the steps to long division.

**is a good YouTube video to explain how we use Base 10 blocks. In our division unit, students will divide by one- and two-digit numbers as well as decimals. Their answers may or may not have remainders and students will need to interpret what to do with the remainder. Our divisors (number we are dividing by) and dividends (the number we are dividing) can be whole numbers or decimals.**

Here is another way to use Base 10 blocks to model division:

**Division Part 2 - Dividing Decimals**Below are 2 YouTube videos. The first one show the standard algorithm for dividing a decimal by another decimal. The second video shows how to demonstrate a similar problem with Base 10 Blocks.
