  2. Do your students need help with the practical application of long division? Are they struggling with the finer points of the algorithm because they don't have the schema behind each step? They may need practice in the act of actually physically dividing a large amount into smaller, equal groups. T

Bundle Description

If you are teaching long division, you probably know that the algorithm is like a foreign language to most kids, because there are so many steps, and the concept is abstract. They may need practice in the act of actually physically dividing a large amount into smaller, equal groups.

These products are also sold individually here:

***************************

Estimating Long Division Task Cards (Activity 1)

This activity worked well for me during a unit on estimating, before actually teaching the full long division algorithm. It involves dividing up tens into groups, and getting comfortable with the idea of having a remainder. It does not help kids with the full algorithm, just the first few steps, in order to develop their feelings of success.

***************************

Long Division Level 2 Task Cards

This activity works well following the "Estimating Long Division Task Cards" learning center in terms of increasing difficulty. Although it does result in a complete answer, the numbers students are dividing require fewer steps when regrouping than in the level 3 product.

This product uses tens and ones in division problems to ensure that the kids follow procedure instead of relying on their knowledge of turn around facts. This activity worked well for me as a pre-teaching activity as well as reinforcement when teaching the full long division algorithm.

***************************

Long Division Level 3 Task Cards

This activity works well following the "Estimating Long Division Task Cards" and "Long Division Level 2 Task Cards" learning centers in terms of increasing difficulty because the numbers students are dividing require an additional step when regrouping.

***************************

You will need:

* Play money. For a group of 6 students, you will need about 150 ten dollar bills and 120 one dollar bills. You could also do this activity with tens rods or tens place value discs that come with Math in Focus. I feature dollar bills since I believe students can relate to real world applications of division with money.

* 40 small containers. I use small trays, but you can use paper plates, cups, or even half sheets of paper to represent an area to place the bills.

Preparation:

* Cut each page in half to create separate cards. The two halves of the first page (the sample card with directions) should be attached by staple, or laminated front to back.

* Laminate all the cards (optional).

* Model the process as outlined on the Sample Card. When dividing up the $110 or $113, distribute them as if you are dealing cards.

* Model writing the answer to the problem above the answer. You might want to encourage children to write "About $30" when estimating.
