Multi-digit divisors are neglected in some syllabi and textbooks including the NCERT ones. They pose a lot of challenges and provide the only case when a standard algorithm of any of the four operations requires estimation. While the skill of dividing with such divisors may have lost its relevance thanks to the prevalence of mobiles with calculators, it is debatable whether they should be completely removed from school math. This ppt explores how to tackle such divisors and includes all possible estimation scenarios.

Division can be explored using array. This further establishes the reverse process of multiplication. It also brings out dividend = divisor x quotient + remainder beautifully. Check the ppt for all these and more...

‘Ma’am may I also do things which bhaiya and didis do?’ asked Diksha. Her teacher asked her with a gesture of pleasant surprise. ‘What things?’ ‘Chamiksha’, said Diksha. ‘Oh, why not!
