This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 10, Unit 5, Grade 6. This activity introduces the use of long division to calculate a quotient of whole numbers. Students make sense of the process of long division by studying an annotated example and relating it to the use of partial quotients and base-ten diagrams. They begin to see that long division is a variant of the partial quotients method, but it is calculated and recorded differently.
