Instant recognition of specific keywords is a sure technique to easily proceed with the division process. Knowing the specific parts, like the dividend, divisor, quotient, and remainder, will avoid misplacement of the given and ensure a correct computation. Other words that imply division, like ratio and average, can be additional clues when easily identified in a problem requiring division as part of the solution. See how shepherd McWIlliams taught his sheep dog McWoof to learn these keywords and to help him take care of his herd. Common Core Reference: CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.6.EE.A.2
