The new Common Core Standards for Math prompted me to create this Partial Quotient Strategy pack for use with students and with parents.
Common Core stresses arming students with a variety of strategies to solve a problem. This includes division. I’ve spent countless hours trying to teach the long division algorithm to each and every student. The truth is, some kids JUST DON’T GET IT! Common Core gives the teacher permission to try teaching the concept using a different strategy. Amazingly, these struggling students seem to catch on fairly quickly to the Partial Quotient Strategy.
At nearly every parent/teacher conference I had this year, I heard how challenging the math was. How the parents could not even help their child with their math because the way we are solving problems is ‘not the way they learned it’. Well, this packet, particularly the foldable would make a great resource for parents.
Included in this packet is a one-fold foldable. The cover gives a brief explanation of the partial quotient method. The inside gives two detailed examples.
I have also included to 2-sided worksheet to use with students. Also, included is a detailed answer key.

Welcome to Mrs. B's Best!
This year marks the start of my 24th year of teaching! While I have taught several different grade levels over the years, I am currently teaching 5th grade math, science and social studies. I love creating various activities for my students and decided it was time to begin sharing with fellow colleagues across the country.
