Product Description
This resource includes 24 task cards that use real life situations to help students practice the skill of interpreting the remainder in a division problem. The dividends in the problems range from 2 digits to 4 digits so teachers can easily differentiate, if needed. This set will challenge students and help them become more proficient when deciding how a remainder affects the answer to a division question. These task cards target 4th grade standards: 4.NBT.6 and 4.OA.3. However, they would serve as a good review for 5th graders. Students may work in pairs or groups to solve the task cards. Also, they would work well in a math center.

Common Core Standards:
4.NBT.6
Find whole-number quotients and remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors, using strategies based on place value, the properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate and explain the calculation by using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
4.OA.3
Solve multistep word problems posed with whole numbers and having whole-number answers using the four operations, including problems in which remainders must be interpreted. Represent these problems using equations with a letter standing for the unknown quantity. Assess the reasonableness of answers using mental computation and estimation strategies including rounding.
