Division Methods | Long Division and Division by Chunking

These two methods can be very useful. I recommend introducing them together - give the students options to work with.
-------------------------

Method 1 - Long Division

Solve 351divided by 9
 Steps
1. 9 goes into 35, 3 times
2. 9 x 3 - 27
3. 35 - 27 = 8 ......bring the unit, 1, down. That makes 81
4. 9 goes into 81, 9 times.
5. Now, 81 - 81 = 0....no remainder, the answer is 39
 
Note: If there is remainder, your answer will be a mixed number (or a decimal number)
 

Method 2 - Division by Chunking - This is about calculating in parts

Solve 351divided by 9

351
  81        (9 x 9) .....you know that from x9 table
----
270        (9 x 30)

ANSWER 39 ......add 30 and 9 to give you the answer (easy aye :))
