  1. 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.

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. This activity works well following the Estimating Long Division Task Cards learning center in terms of increasing difficulty, however if your students are comfortable with multistep directions it is designed to be a complete activity on its own.

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.

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.

► 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, distribute them as if you are dealing cards.
► Model writing the answer to the problem above the answer.
