The distributive property for division basically means you can split your quantity up into smaller chunks that are easier to divide.

Let’s take 176 ÷ 8 as an example. It’s easier for students to consider questions in context, so think of putting 176 apples into bags of 8.

If we take the first 80 apples, then it’s easier to see that would be split up into 10 apples into each bag. 80 ÷ 8 is a much easier question.

The next 80 apples are divided up, adding another 10 to each bag.

That leaves 16 apples, which when divided up into 8 bags makes 2 each.

So what we’ve done is split 176 ÷ 8 into

80 ÷ 8

80 ÷8

16 ÷ 8

Once students have done this with various contexts, they can practice with numerical situations. Daily oral / mental math time is perfect for this. Some questions should have remainders.

Fuck

this math sucks

This will make you a mental case doing simple division this way…. doesn’t make sense

I’m confused

it does not help try to explain more

This Does not Help.

Does not help I had this stuff for class work I only reached question 4 and I have the rest for homework and my math practice did not help

This is not how my teacher taught us, it is way more complicated.

Who do this makes no sense ☹️

Sorry but I don’t like this nor understand this it really no help try harder

THIS WEBSITE IS SO FUCKING STUPID !!!!!!!!!!!!!

This site sucks DICK

This Common Core math totally sucks! Not the way I was taught 50 years ago. This does NOT make sense.

This does not help at all bitches

I don’t like it

it makes sence ur just dumb all ed to do it divide it then u add up all the answers duh

need* not ” ed ” xD

I HATE MATH

wut is this?

i like math and all but was is this piece of shit!?

i dony get it my teacher did not teach it like this

most of these comments are form “ANONYMOUS”

Your mothers wouldn’t be too happy to see you cursing lik this now would they?

This site is so trash
