## Lesson details

### Key learning points

- Short division helps us to organise division by partitioning.
- The language of unitising helps to explain what is happening in short division.
- There are similarities between the representations of division and short division.
- The partial quotients are recorded above the dividend in the correct place value columns.

### Common misconception

Pupils may incorrectly arrange the dividend or divisor and quotient.

Clear modelling. Ask children 'What does this number represent?' - 'The dividend and it is placed inside the division frame.'

### Keywords

Short division - Short division is a formal method of division often used when dividing any number by a one digit number.

Dividend - The dividend is the amount that you want to divide up.

Divisor - A divisor is a number that divides the integer exactly (no remainder).
