Have one student measure and the other cut.1. Measure and cut a piece of cord 110 cm long.2. Start at one end of the cord and cut pieces that are 8 cm long.   Cut as many pieces as possible.  Measure carefully.3. Count the number of 8 cm pieces you have cut.4. Measure the piece that is left over. It should measure 6 cm.Repeat the process for other lengths of string.Conclusion:      110 / 8 = 13 r6.Evaluation:    For each division sentence, make and complete a table showing: 1. Length of single piece 2. Length of single pieces to be cut from single piece 3. Number of exact-size pieces that can be cut from single piece 4. Size of left-over piece (the remainder) 5. Division sentence (Give the division sentence this represents)Repeat for the other examples.`
