Common Core Division**

**
Common core division uses partial
quotients. For example, if you divide 136 ÷ 8 you would start by guessing how
many times 8 could go into 136. Let's try 10 times, so that would be 80. We have
56 left over. We continue to repeat the process for the remaining amount, how
many times does 8 go into 56? That would be seven times. Then you add the
numbers together 10 + 7 = 17. So the answer is 17.**

Core Division “Friendly” Numbers Explained
**

**Break
down numbers into “friendly” numbers. Breaking down numbers into easily
divisible numbers is important to learn for number fluency. This may seem a bit
tedious, but understanding how to break large numbers into easier-to-manipulate
numbers can build children’s mental math capacities.**

**Break
down 260 into the “friendly” numbers 250 and 10. I chose 250 because it’s the
divisor, 5, multiplied by a big number (50). I choose 10 because it’s the
difference between 250 and 260. These go inside the boxes of the area model.
Divide each one by the divisor to get the factors, then add the factors
together.**
