Long Division worksheet - Printable Math Division Tutor Worksheets with mystery word.
The purpose of the program is to teach the algorithm of long division in a way that allows the student to think through the process with minimal verbal input from the teacher.
3rd- through 12th grades
The program was developed initially for use as a remedial tool but has proven to be effective for instructing students who are learning to divide for the first time.
Each sheet has six problems with vaious divisors per sheet.
Series III (Set 1)
Students must multiply before dividing. Multiplication answers are provided.
-First, students multiply to find the products that will be used to
solve the problems then
-use the products correctly in the solution of problems having both
one and two digit divisors.
• The multiples of the divisor (which will be used for the subtrahends) are given in a box of a different shade, (color sheets) or a box with a patterned background (grayscale sheets). This pattern or shade is used to show the position of the subtrahends within the division scaffold.
• In problems where students obtain a difference when subtracting, the line where the differences are written is designated with a brightly colored or black boldface line.
• Lightly shaded arrows prompt students to bring down the next number and a box shows were to place that number. The new dividend is formed with this number and the remainder from the subtraction. (At first, I have students lightly circle this number.)
All quotients are given at the bottom of the page. Reveal the Mystery Word by matching each letter with its solved quotient.
Once students figure out the first five problems, can’t they simply write in the last answer?
Students will know the answer of the last problem but they must still follow through with the calculation process. Learning the calculation process is the primary purpose of the worksheets; so knowing the quotient of the last problem does not interfere with the practice sequence.
