Warm-up Notice and Wonder: Equations with Hundreds
What do you notice? What do you wonder?
Activity 1 A Stack of Partial Quotients
Jada used partial quotients to find out how many groups of 7 are in 389.
Analyze Jada’s steps in the algorithm.
Look at the three numbers above 389. What do they represent?
Look at the three subtractions below 389. What do they represent?
What is another way you can decompose 389 to divide by 7?
Is 389 a multiple of 7? Explain your reasoning.
Use an algorithm that uses partial quotients to find out how many groups of 3 are in 702.
Is 702 a multiple of 3? Explain your reasoning.
Activity 2 Andre and Elena’s Work
Andre and Elena are dividing 2,316 by 5. Before they begin, Andre says, “I can already tell that there will be a remainder.”
Without doing any calculations, decide if you agree with Andre. Explain your reasoning.
Here is Andre and Elena’s work. Each student made one or more errors. Identify the errors each student made. Then, show a correct computation.
Activity 3 Incomplete Calculations
Here are four calculations to find the value of
Complete at least two of the unfinished calculations. Be prepared to explain why you chose them.
Use partial quotients to find the value of
If there are 637 toothpicks and 4 people, what could
mean in this situation? What could each step you took in the algorithm mean?
What does the value of the quotient represent in the situation?
