Math Help

Clip to ScrapBook #1

I am an in-class support for 4th grade math class. We just finished double digit multiplication and majority of kids could not grasp this. We are now moving onto long division. Iím extremely nervous for this! I thought about writing out the step for the kids (like a checklist) but it seems to make it more complicated. Anyone have any suggestions on what I can give/do for my kids? Or do think they are just going to need smaller group setting for something like this?

Thanks for the help

I teach my kids different ways/ strategies like regular method, lattice, area model, tower, and cluster. There are just some kids who get lost in the process of the regular method and they understand the reasoning for the other strategies better.

take a look at these.

my students do really well with the Partial Product and the Partial Quotient methods for doing multi-digit multiplication and division.
