Videos, stories and songs to help Grade 4 students learn about the partial quotients division method.

The** partial quotients method** (sometimes also called

When dividing a large number (dividend) by a small number (divisor)

- Subtract from the dividend an easy multiple (for example 100×, 10×, 5× 2×, etc.) of the divisor.
- Repeat the subtraction until the large number has been reduced to zero or the remainder is less than the divisor.
- Add up the multiples of the divisor that were used in the repeated subtraction to find the answer of the division.

This is a demonstration to help parents teach or assist in using partial quotients division at home.
