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.
Division Word Problems: Reindeer Remainder- a festive division unit covering remainders, word problems and rules of divisibility. Fun math centers, partner practice and independent work included! Fancy Free in Fourth
After students can compute with long division, they need to know exactly what it is they are computing! They must be explicitly taught interpreting remainders, and these task cards help them see what to do with each remainder they come across.
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.
