Dividing 723 ÷ 5 Using Partial Quotients

This video illustrates how to use the partial quotient strategy to divide. To correctly use the partial quotient strategy, students need to have strong recall skills in division and multiplication facts. Students rely on this knowledge to partition the larger quantity that is being divided, into smaller and more manageable numbers.  The partial quotient strategy is an alternative strategy for students who have not yet mastered the steps of the traditional algorithm.
