Interpreting remainders in a division story problem can be a difficult concept to grasp but this graphic organizer breaks it down in a way that's easier to understand.
To use this interpreting remainders graphic organizer I pass out the blank copy to my students at the beginning of the lesson. I then explain each of the 5 ways to interpret a remainder and draw them on my chart while they follow along making their own copy. In the end we have this graphic on the wall to refer to during the rest of the unit and they all have their own copy that they can pull out and refer to whenever they want!
The 5 ways to interpret a remainder that I included in the organizer are:
• Drop it
• Write it as a left over
• Round up
For unit of measure:
• Write it as a fraction
• Write it as a decimal
This file includes:
• The filled out example of the interpreting remainders graphic organizer with examples or each of the ways.
• A blank copy of the interpreting remainders graphic organizer for students to fill in.
