Product Description

This product was created to help students understand reasonableness when solving division problems. It is designed to identify the 4 ways to interpret a remainder, the importance of understanding the questions and how to use their solution to properly answer the question. This lesson can be done in a whole groups or small group/guided math format. We also have a Interpret Remainder: Practice as a companion to these notes.


About this Product:

This activity covers the following standards:

5.3C Solve with proficiency for quotients of up to a 4-digit dividend and 2-digit divisor.

5.3G Solve for quotients with decimals to the hundredths


Product Includes:

  • Guided Notes (single sheet or foldable option for journal)
    • Covers: What is interpreting remainders? / The 4 ways to interpret remainders/ 4 different word problems to go through together as a class or group

  • Answer key/Instructional guide

Note: Color Coding

I have found that the color-coding helps my students separate the different scenarios of interpreting remainders. I also have my students use the same color-coding system on the Interpret Remainders: Practice.
