Many students struggle with long division but it pops up everywhere, from dividing 420 pages in a book by 20 nights of reading to dividing 756 arrows into quivers with 9 arrows each. Watch this video to learn how to solve word problems that require long division.

Get more math practice with videos like this in our game Spirit Lake.

In Spirit Lake, players practice multiplication, division, geometry through word problems while learning about the Native American history of Dakota. Save your tribe from attacks and a spreading epidemic by solving math problems while escaping rabid wolves and hunting buffalo. Math has never been this fun!

Thanks for asking, Roxanne. This video addresses the following standard
CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NBT.B.6
Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.

In this video we explain the calculation by using equations. We have other videos that use models.

This is excellent the past way of learning division but how do you solve the problem using the Common Core Standards State Standard methods.
