Grade 4 Math (WCPSS): Division with Area Model Video 2
Video, Math, Grade 4, Elementary,
The WCPSS Math Department has produced this video to support teachers as they teach the unit Strategies for Division in the grade 4 math curriculum.
Students may use the rectangular array strategy to solve division of whole numbers. Sometimes a student may not choose the number that is closest to the dividend without going over but that is okay. Since they are finding partial quotients using the rectangular array/area model, the rectangle can be extended as many times as needed. These partial quotients are added and the final quotient for the division problem is determined. This video clearly demonstrates and explains this process.
