In this video, learn how to use long division to divide large numbers. In the accompanying classroom activity, students learn how to use the standard long division algorithm. They explore alternative ways of thinking about long division by using place value to decompose three-digit numbers into hundreds, tens, and ones, creating three smaller (and less complex) division problems. Students then use these different solution methods in a short partner game.
