**5.2.4**

**Solve problems involving the division of two- and three-digit whole numbers by one- and two-digit whole numbers.**

This week (week 1) begins our trek into division.

We will be starting off with 1 digit divisors and 2 & 3 digit dividends.

*15/2= 7.5 or 7 remainder 1*

*125/5= 25 or 25 remainder 0*

Next week (week 2) we will be working on 2 digit divisors and 2 & 3 digit dividends.

*24/12= 2 or 2 remainder 0*

*125/25= 5 or 5 remainder 0*

**5.1.3**

**Recognize the unit associated with the remainder in a division problem or the meaning of the fractional part of a whole given in either decimal or fraction form.**

**5.2.3 Select a reasonable solution to a real-world division problem in which the remainder must be considered.**

The following week (3) we will be working on word problems involving division. They will have to understand when a remainder is important and when it is not important.

*How many school buses are needed for a fieldtrip of 90 kids when each bus can carry 35 kids?*

*90/35=2.57 or 2 remainder 20*

*They would need 3 buses because 2 buses would be full and one would have 20 kids on it.*

**Their test on division itself will be September 16!**

**Then the week of September 23rd will be our division word problems & test will be on September 23.**
