Division Task Cards
4 Digits Divided by 1 Digit
or Decimals in the Answers (Decimals in the Quotient)
4.NBT.B.6 , 5.NBT.B.6
I will be able to divide four digit numbers by one digit with remainders.
I will be able to divide four digit numbers by on digit with decimals in the quotient.
The step up from simple division to long division is a challenge for my students. I scaffold my teaching and slowly work up to remainders. When we reach dividing decimals, we go back and use these task cards again but this time instead of remainders, we have decimals in the answer.
I created these task cards as a way to have the opportunity for a lot of repetition. I like to mix things up and task cards are a way to do that. These task cards can used as an early finisher, as a scoot game, or as a center.
Task cards have become a game for us. I give my students white boards and challenged them to beat me. Of course, I have to even the playing field so I walk a lap around the classroom between steps. When I solve the problem, they show their boards and I count the number of students that have completed the problem. This provides those students that were nervous the chance to copy what I'm doing until they are confident enough to try it on their own. As students gain confidence, they become the person the class is trying to beat by coming up to the white board.
I hope you can use these task cards to help your students enjoy the practice the division practice they need.
