Lesson 14 Student Outcomes
• Students use the algorithm to divide multi-digit numbers with and without remainders. Students compare
their answer to estimates to justify reasonable quotients.
• Students understand that when they “bring down” the next digit in the algorithm, they are distributing,
recording, and shifting to the next place value.
Lesson 14 Concept Development
Divide: 31,218 ÷ 132
First estimate the quotient. Then use the division algorithm to get an exact answer. Finally, compare the two to decide if the answer is reasonable.
Divide: 974,835 ÷ 12.45
