4th Graders at Van Allen have begun working on dividing larger numbers. Teachers have recently introduced the “Big 7” method to students. (This method is also called Partial Quotient Method) This method looks very different than the standard algorithm, but students are finding this method to be much easier to understand!

Watch the following video to see this method in action:

=Students have been enjoying using this method to work out problems, and discussing their process with their classmates. (Students have found that there are many different ways to solve the same problem!)
