Subject: Double Double Division Comment
Thanks for putting this information on the web! On October 4th, I started teaching division to a small group of lower performing fifth grade students. On Sunday night, I was so down-hearted about the idea of teaching it again on Monday morning that I Googled “How do I teach long division?” Thankfully, your site popped up. Three days later my group was able to divided 5 digit numbers by a 2 digit divisor. Wow! I’m thrilled! They’re thrilled!
Some students have commented:
I have bragged about this method and my kids’ progress to anyone who will listen. Thank you.
