Written Division Flipped Class

Week four of our "flipped classroom" homework, looks at the "chunking" method of division.  Look and listen, have a go at the challenge and chuckle at my short term memory whilst trying to find room to put my answer down for the challenge question at the end!

Natasha, as all of class New Zealand are aware, I frequently make mistakes! In this case, however, I was actually correct (cue the trumpet celebrations)! 178 divided by 8 is indeed 22.25 as I am converting the remainder into a decimal. Have another listen and see how I did this. You are NOT wrong in saying it is 22r2, it is just that I converted the answer to a decimal. In other words... we were both right 8)

Don't be :-| Natasha, I'm so impressed you have picked things like this up. You have understood the method so well that you are questioning what I have done. This makes me :lol: about your learning.

Flipped classes for English, let me get my Green (creative) Hat on...

Great feedback, Oliver. That's exactly the kind of suggestion that we want from you all: ways we can help to improve your learning!

Natasha, very impressed that you questioned whether your teacher had made a mistake - that takes quite a bit of courage. Teachers - that includes me - make mistakes all the time so you were right to do so. Well done!

No problem Hal, that's what class time is for. Good use of the connective "although", our English layered targets are coming through! Complex sentence anyone?!
