National Center on Intensive Intervention

This video demonstrates how to use base-10 blocks to help students solve division problems that cannot be solved with automatic retrieval. The use of direct modeling with concrete manipulatives to demonstrate division allows students to visualize the division of a quantity into equal groups. Students should have multiple opportunities to practice division with manipulatives to develop an understanding of the steps for regrouping and dividing quantities into equal groups. While students may have moved on to traditional algorithms with other operations (e.g., subtraction) they may still require the use of concrete manipulatives with learning division.
