Interpreting Remainders can be one of the hardest concepts for students to understand. Practicing this skill with engaging scenarios could definitely contribute to them being successful. My students loved working through these rigorous problems without realizing how deep they were actually thinking and communicating. Each page states an elf scenario. Students will solve the elf problems that occur in each scenario by answering the questions in the table. Once students solve the elf problem they will need to interpret/determine what to do with the remainders in each scenario – either IGNORE IT, ROUND IT UP, or USE IT.
There are 4 elf scenarios, but each scenario has 3-4 different problems relating to the same scenario. This also supports students comprehending problems from different perspectives, and not just looking for numbers and completing computations.
