You have worked so hard on demonstrating what you've learned about partial quotients and the "traditional" method of division. I am excited to see the division story problems you have come up with, and even more excited for your classmates (and the world) to solve them! Here's mine...good luck! Mrs. Smith's heart beats 4,860 beats/hour. How many times does her heart beat per minute? Bonus: How many times does her heart beat in a day? Show and explain and your work in the comment section below. Article posted February 14, 2013 at 02:44 PM GMT • comment (9) • Reads 2548
