Dividing 723 ÷ 5 Using Traditional Algorithm

This video shows how to use the traditional division algorithm. Unlike other traditional algorithms used with addition, subtraction, and multiplication, the traditional algorithm used for division requires that students move left to right. The traditional division algorithm is very efficient to use and can be used with numbers of varying digit length. Although efficient, correct use of the traditional algorithm requires that students have strong basic fact recall (i.e., with multiplication facts and subtraction) and that students have a firm understanding of place value.
