Multiply the quotient by the divisor and add the remainder.
Once the concept is clear and mastered fully, math students can solve the next long division worksheets: 3 digits divided by 1 digit, 3 digits divided by 2, 4 (or 5 or 6) digits by 2, and so on.
Include a list of multiplication problems that students must solve in groups to “unlock” the box.
Worksheets are a tried-and-true staple of math class.
When they’re done, the second student looks for errors and continues the problem.
If they finish the problem, they can call for you to come check their work and trade the correct answer for a card with a new problem.
Have them multiply the divisor by the quotient and add the remainder — the answer should be the same as the dividend they started with.
Start with one-digit divisors and two-digit dividends to keep things simple.
This activity is a fun way for your class to celebrate finishing their unit on division.
Get a few boxes and fill them with a small treat everyone in the class can enjoy.
