Long Division - DMSCB

This week students have been learning how to do long division. We learned about the acronym DMSCB which stands for Does McDonald's Sell Cheese Burgers? Each beginning letter in that sentence stands for a step that students must take to do their long division.

Remember: The dividend (number inside our division house) is divided by the divisor (the number outside the house) and we ALWAYS put our quotient/the answer on the top of our house or on the roof.

We did 2 example problems so students could get some practice. We also did some more independent practice problems that I wrote on the board. Please review these practice problems with your child.

Here is a really good video for long division that we watched in class:
