ROBOTS' INTRODUCTION to LONG DIVISION has everything you need to introduce the long division process to your students—step-by-step instructional posters, graphic student reminder cards, long division terms flashcards, differentiated graphic computation sheets, and task cards!
The neat thing about long division is that it involves a series of steps. Everytime they are performed accurately, and in the right order, they will result in a correct answer. If your students could simply be robots, they'd "get it" on the first try. Since they aren't, this pack will help you teach them the method that will help them master it. They will learn to Divide Like a Robot.
As you'll see in the PREVIEW we start with Defining the Terms your students will need to know to effectively talk about the steps in each problem. This we'll do with an instructional poster and flash cards.
Then, you'll go through each of the Six Steps using a sample problem and instructional posters:
4. Bring down & repeat steps 1-4
5. Determine if there is a Remainder
6. Check the answer
Next, it is time to put pencil to paper. Using the 48 Task Cards your students will work the long division using the Graphic Organizer Computation Sheets and their Student Graphic Reminder Card.
The task cards are included in color and black and white. There are 24 Two-Digit divided by One-Digit cards; half of these have remainders. The rest are Three-Digit numbers divided by One-Digit; half of these have remainders. **The task cards included problems with zero in the quotient (i.e. the divisor is, at times, too big to divide a number in the dividend).**
As your students get more comfortable with the steps in the long division, you can graduate them to the black & white computation sheets, and then the blank sheets (both of which include the "check" reminder). It won't be long before your students are Dividing Like Robots!
