## Lesson: Adjusting the Quotient

Developing the Concept

Your students have now reviewed finding compatible numbers for estimating answers to division problems with two-digit divisors. Now have them learn to adjust their estimates to find actual quotients.

**Materials:** model multiplication facts table from *Introducing the Concept*

**Preparation:** Post your model multiplication fact table where students can see it.

**Wrap-Up and Assessment Hints**

Create several division problems and the problem used to estimate the quotient (see the example, below). These problems should include a mix of estimates that are too large and too small. For each problem, ask students to first tell if the estimate is too large or too small. Then have them write a sentence telling how they know. Finally, have students find the actual quotient.
