I have been asked many times for more details about how I use partial quotients to move kids from a concrete model for division to an abstract one. I am happy to announce that I have finally written a detailed post about how I introduce and connect partial quotients to a visual model for division. I have been very lucky to be able to share this as a guest post over on Corkboard Connections. This is an amazing blog by one of my favorite educators, Laura Candler. If you haven't seen her resources, you will definitely want to check them out!
