Division Strategies

Other Strategies

Here are some of the strategies we have learned in class recently.

Base Ten Blocks

Base ten blocks are used to model the 165 people. The blocks are shared into 6 sets equally by regrouping the blocks as necessary. You would have to add one more table for the last three people.

Decomposing (Zombie) Way

Flexible Algorithm (Chunks or Pieces) Way

 

Standard Algorithm (Caveman) Way
