Divisibility rules, or divisibility tests, have a wide range of applications in mathematics (finding factors, determining if a number is prime or composite, simplifying fractions, probability, etc.), but are often underemphasized in the classroom or not explored in enough detail for students to retain and use them as they progress through higher math classes. This product, which makes a great beginning of the year activity, contains fun and student-friendly poetry for divisibility rules (tests) for 1,2,3,4,5,6,9, and 10, step-by-step instructions for how to implement this poetry in your classroom, and a note-taking worksheet (and a key) that helps the students master and apply the poetry. This document, and other associated products, will ensure that your students master divisibility rules (tests) using a fun and proven technique. Worksheets and mastery tests (with keys) that go hand-in-hand with this poetry can be purchased either individually (Divisibility Rule Poetry - Worksheet 1 and Mastery Test 1, etc.) or in a bundled, discounted packet (Divisibility Rule Poetry - Worksheets, Keys, and Mastery Tests). If you are interested in enabling your students to easily experience the lasting benefits of divisibility rules, these are the products for you!

If you would like some additional critical thinking problems to accompany your divisibility rule unit, or to use as some challenging review later in the school year, you may also wish to purchase Divisibility Rule Critical Thinking 10-Number Challenge Competitions. This product adds a new critical thinking dimension to divisibility rules by stating the divisibility rule requirements and asking the students to come up with a number that meets the requirements and then prove that the number meets the criteria. These puzzlers work well to solidify divisibility concepts in a fun and engaging way.

Good luck in your use of Divisibility Rule Poetry!
