This can be used as an introductory or review lesson depending on individual learning needs or class personality.
This lesson includes notes, 2 core lesson problems, 3 practice problems and an exit ticket for assessment. Comprehensive solutions are included.
6th grade asks students to be fluent with the division algorithm, but with this fluency there should also be implementation of reasoning and interpretation of remainders. This is a tall order for a sixth grader, but a great way to reinforce clock math, and when to round up and or down. In the presented solutions I show the break apart and multiples method to solve. Break apart is a precursor to the distributive property and multiplicative thinking will be the numerical bread and butter of the unit on ratios (proportional reasoning).
