This fun partner game reinforces multi-digit division skills.
The object of Tic-Tac-Quo is the same as the object of Tic-Tac-Toe. One player is “X” and the other is “O”. Each player’s goal is to get 3 Xs or 3 Os in a row.
In order to make a “move” on the board, however, students must solve a division problem. The cards include only dividends - no divisors or quotients. To find the divisor, students use a paper clip and pencil to spin a number on the spinner. They use that number as the divisor for the problem of their choosing on the board.
There are SIX different game boards included, allowing you to differentiate based on student needs or target specific skills within the standard.
Since students use the spinner to determine the divisor, each card represents an infinite number of possible problems. Thus, the cards can be used over and over by students in your classroom! Each time they will be solving different problems. (This is also why no answer key is included - the quotients will depend on the divisors students use based on the spinner.)
I recommend students use their notebooks or additional paper to show their work using whichever strategies they prefer and/or you ask for.
•Student-friendly directions and spinner (in color and black and white)
•6 leveled game boards (in color and black and white)
•Level 1 Card A/Level 11 Card B: 2-digit dividends
•Level 2 Card A/Level 2 Card B: 3-digit dividends
•Level 3 Card A/Level 3 Card B: 4-digit dividends
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.
Although this center meets the above Common Core standard, this is NOT a Common Core specific skill! There is NO reference to the Common Core or the standard number on student pages, so this center is a great addition to any classroom!
