While division algorithms can be fairly rote, tackling remainders requires logical thinking and deeper understanding. Here are four math activities I use with my students to help them figure out what to do about remainders.
Division Activity: Interpreting Remainders Division Game
Division: Interpreting Remainders Game contains 36 WORD PROBLEM game cards and a game board to help students practice interpreting the remainder in division word problems. This game works great as a pair/group activity, in math centers, or for use as an informal assessment tool.
5th Grade Interactive Math Notebook: These Common Core Aligned Interactive Notebooks are designed to give a visual cues and practice problems to teach interpreting remainders in fourth grade and fifth grade.
