Subject(s): Elementary, Mathematics
Topic or Unit of Study: Long Division Mathematics
Objective: Students will research steps in the BrainPOP using the hot list.
Students will draw visual cue (long division face with goatee) that represents all the
steps in long division.
Students will list all the steps to solve long division problems.
Summary: Students will use a hot list to research for information on the steps in solving long
Learning Context: This is the first lesson in a plan on Long Division using 2 by 1. The next session will be
on Long Division using 3 by 1 digits.
The teacher will use the white board to draw a visual cue of an oval shape face, with
two division signs for eyes that represent divide, a multiplication sign for the nose that
means to multiply, a subtraction sign for the mouth which means to subtract, and an
arrow that means to bring down to represent a goatee.
Students will follow features on the face (from top to bottom) to solve long division
problems. The teacher will work through the first 2 or 3 problems using the white
board, then as a whole with students following along. The teacher will check for
clarification before allowing for students to work independently.
Discuss with students what they have learned about Long Division.
Take students to the computer lab, where the media specialist will show them how to
use the hot list.
Review with students how to save all documents and procedures on logging in and out
of the computer.
Student will go to the computer lab, where they will be paired in groups of two to
began an extension research review of long division.
Take students back to the classroom and discuss what they found in their research.
Teacher will give the students a problem solving task that involves real life application.
For example, there are seven pizza's, each pizza has eight slices, and there are 40
student's. If they shared the pizza equally, how many slices are there in all. There are
56 slices of pizza divided among each students, with 16 slices remaining.
The teachers assistant will assist students with learning disabilities. Abby will need to
use large print to researching his problem.
There are no student lessons. This lesson has not been taught.
Collaboration: Students will work collaboratively & individually. Students will work in groups of 2.
Time Allotment: 2 class periods. 1.75 Hrs per class.
Author's Comments & Reflections:
Remember to make an appointment with the media specialist and reserve the
computer lab for Monday and Wednesday.

MI- Michigan Grade Level Content Expectations
• Subject : MATHEMATICS
• Grade : THIRD GRADE
• Strand : NUMBER AND OPERATIONS
• Topic : Multiply and divide whole numbers
Expectation : N.FL.03.13 Mentally calculate simple products and
quotients up to a three-digit number by a one-digit number involving
multiples of 10, e.g., 500 x 6, or 400 ÷ 8.
Expectation : N.MR.03.09 Use multiplication and division fact families to
understand the inverse relationship of these two operations, e.g., because 3
x 8 = 24, we know that 24 ÷ 8 = 3 or 24 ÷ 3 = 8. Express a multiplication
statement as an equivalent division statement.
Expectation : N.MR.03.12 Find solutions to open sentences such as 7 x =
42 or 12 ÷ = 4, using the inverse relationship between multiplication and
Expectation : N.MR.03.10 Recognize situations that can be solved using
multiplication and division including finding “How many groups?” and “How
many in a group?” and write mathematical statements for those situations.
