Two digit division

We dove into two digit division today. We review the process (steps below) and went over a few examples in class and then having class time to work on a worksheet while getting help from a teacher.
Steps for solving a division problem
  1. find the first # the divisor will go into
  2. estimate the division (quotient)
  3. multiply
  4. subtract
  5. compare (# should be less than the divisor.. * if it is move on to next step..if NO * go back to step #2 and either make it a larger or smaller guess)
  6. bring down
  7. repeat steps 2-6 until all numbers in the dividend have been brought down
  8. write remainder if necessary
  9. circle answer
  • word problem #1
  • ws #42 division
