## Introduction

Learn to divide by two-digit divisors, recording calculations using either the short or long division algorithm. Represent remainders in an appropriate way, according to the context, including using the short or long division algorithm to express remainders as decimal fractions.

## Teaching points

• Teaching point 1: Any two- or three-digit dividend can be divided by a two-digit divisor by skip counting in multiples of the divisor (quotient < 10); these calculations can be recorded using the short or long division algorithms.

• Teaching point 2: Any three- or four-digit dividend can be divided by a two-digit divisor using the short or long division algorithms (including quotient ≥ 10).

• Teaching point 3: When there is a remainder, the result can be expressed as a whole-number quotient and a whole-number remainder, as a whole-number quotient and a proper-fraction remainder, or as a decimal-fraction quotient.
