If you have not read the first article, you can click here to read why my strategies are so very successful. In this third article we will focus on three digit numbers divided by two digit numbers. Every problem has its own video tutorial, offering immediate online tutoring for your child.

__ESTIMATING WHEN YOU HAVE A TWO-DIGIT DIVISOR
__Typically, children are taught to round the devisor before estimating how many time the divisor will go into the dividend. For example, with the problem 433 ÷ 74; Children are taught to round 74 down to 70. This can cause a lot of frustration and erasing. Next, since 7 x 6 = 42, you would multiply by 6. But as you can see below, the 6 is too high and that would put you over, so you would have to erase and try again.

__ESTIMATING HIGH WITH AREA DIVISION
__When children are struggling with the basic concept of division, you need to simplify the process, so they can feel successful. This is why I teach children to estimate high. With some problems, like 719 ÷ 83, it does add an extra step, but as you can see in the mathematical model below; there is NO erasing and it works every time.

With this strategy, children will never get frustrated, because they guess too high and have to erase!

The strategy of counting by the numbers is designed specifically for children who do NOT know their multiplication facts. My goal is for children is to memorize their multiplication facts. However, until they know all their facts, they need a strategy. Counting by the numbers is the easiest strategy to learn. Therefore, I have added counting by the numbers to the end of each and every video. Children who do not know all their multiplication facts should watch and count with me at the end of each of these videos until they can count by all the number on their own. Repetition of this strategy will help in all areas of math that require multiplication. **Once a child knows all their multiplication facts, they can stop the videos after the problem is solved and before Counting by the Numbers begins.**

###### I have scaffold the problems in each lesson.

The first problem in this article is a “**Watch Me**” problem. The second is a “**Work with Me**” problem. All the rest are “**On Your Own**” problems.

*If your child needs a bit more support, they should complete the “**On Your Own**” problems as a “**Work with Me**” problem. I have a number of students with gaps in their learning and others with a variety of learning disabilities. I have had incredible success, by having those students complete 5 to 7 problems within each lesson as a “**Work with Me**” problem. They play a bit of the video, then pause it and copy, then watch a bit more, pause it and copy. My students Play – Pause – and Copy until the entire problem is solved. This is like having a **personal tutor working through each and every problem with your child**. Every one of my students who has used this strategy has passed the Common Core Proficiency Exam.
