Dividing by 97 – and other such numbers (VIDEO!)

Students need help “standing back” and seeking perspective on matters. It is easy to get locked into memorisation and procedure. This little video is just a tidbit that helps in this regard. It provides an easy example of the power that can result in pausing to think about things first before diving in. Dividing big numbers by 97 is actually fairly straightforward. This is not a technique to be memorised, but a statement about thinking!

    Written for educators - and their students too! - this website, slowly growing, takes all the content Tanton has developed in his books, videos, and workshops, and organizes it into short, self-contained, and complete, curriculum units proving that mathematics, at all points of the school curriculum, can be joyous, fresh, innovative, rich, deep-thinking, and devoid of any rote doing! Let's teach generations of students to be self-reliant thinkers, willing to flail and to use their common sense to "nut their way" through challenges, to assess and judge results, and to adjust actions to find success. (Great life skills!)
