## Lesson: Regrouping to Divide

Developing the Concept

After students have explored the division of greater numbers with no regrouping, they can proceed to divide with regrouping.

**Materials:** play money: ten $1 bills, 10 dimes, and 25 pennies for each student or pair of students, or Learning Tool 6 in the *Learning Tools Folder*

**Preparation:** Distribute the play money to each student or pair of students.

**Prerequisite Skills and Background:** Students should know how to divide greater numbers with no regrouping.

**Wrap-Up and Assessment Hints**

Students need a great deal of practice when learning to divide multidigit numbers. Do not be in a rush for students to put away their manipulatives when learning this concept. Assess students based on their understanding of skills that lead up to the division algorithm, such as what to do with a remainder and whether or not regrouping is necessary.
