Each of these 32 Division task cards were designed to help students practice interpreting the remainder. On the included answer sheet, students not only record the answer to the problem, but also check one of three boxes to show how they dealt with the remainder. An answer key is also included so that students can check their work.
Because this concept is often challenging to both teach and learn, I have provided a student handout and three posters that outline the three remainder choices. In addition, there is also a Challenge Card that can be used with any of the other cards in this set that asks students to explain how they interpreted the remainder.
These cards will look best in color, but will also print out fine in grayscale. Simply print and cut along the guidelines. Laminate and use them again and again. Alternatively, you could print on cardstock. It works well to keep them in a baggie. Another option is to hole-punch a corner of each card and put them all on a ring.
Several Common Core Standards that deal with basic computation are addressed in these cards, but the product is most aligned with this standard:
4.OA.3. Solve multistep* word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
*These problems are not multistep because the goal of this set is to practice interpreting remainders and I felt adding extra steps would be confusing at this stage.
