Partial Quotients Division

  • $3.99
  • Category: Education
  • Updated: Oct 05, 2012
  • Version: 2.3
  • Size: 1.7 MB

  • Seller: Esa Helttula
Requirements: Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad. Requires iOS 4.3 or later. This app is optimized for iPhone 5.

Description

This math app can be used to teach and study the partial quotients division method. The app is easy to use and it has an intuitive interactive interface with customizable colours and other settings. The user can solve random and custom division problems.
he Partial Quotients Division Method

The traditional long division method can be difficult to understand because it is so abstract. In the partial quotients method the student can make a series of estimates and then add the estimated quotients together. 

In the example 992/8 the first estimation can be 100, which leaves 192. Next estimation can be 20 which leaves 32. Now the student knows that 8 goes 4 times into 32 and the result can be found by adding up the partial quotients 100, 20 and 4. Each student can use the quotients that he or she finds the easiest.

In the Everyday Mathematics curriculum the partial quotients division method is the focus algorithm for division.

The App is Easy to Use

After the user solves each operation or inputs a new estimate, the correct answer will fly to the right place. If the user presses the wrong button or gives an impossible estimate the answer will appear above the keyboard but it will not move. 

The App Has The Following Settings

- The dividend can have from 2 to 5 digits
- The divisor can have 1 or 2 digits
- Random and custom problems
- The current operation can be hidden
- The operands of the current operation can be highlighted
- Colours of the interface can be changed
- The speed of the animations can be set

Description

This math app can be used to teach and study the column division method. The app is easy to use and it has an intuitive interactive interface with customizable colors and other settings. The user can solve random division problems.

The Column Division Method

The column division method is a simple variation of the traditional long division method. Lines are drawn to separate the digits of the divisor. Each place-value column is solved from left to right.

In the Everyday Mathematics curriculum the column division method is one of the algorithms for division.
