Product Description
We spend so much time teaching our students how to do long division and then, to our horror, when they reach a word problem, they are unsure of which part of the answer they should use and how! With this quick list of rules, you can teach your students the following division word problem tricks:

When to use the quotient as the answer
When to use the remainder as the answer
When to round up for your answer
How to tell if it is in fact a division problem.

My students had great success after we focused on a problem solving lesson using these strategies. Check out my multiplication and division word problems too!!!!
