    Interpreting Division with Remainders

    • Resource ID: TXLS004-0
    • Grade Range: 4
    • Subject: Math

    Students will be given various one- and two-step word problems and asked to interpret the remainder. Students will use foldables and anchor charts to determine under which category (“Drop the Remainder,” “Add One to the Quotient,” “Share the Remainder,” or “The Remainder is the Answer”) the question will fall. After completing that portion of the lesson, students will solve division problems and determine which type of remainder question they are working with. They will use Plicker © cards to display their answers so the teacher can have immediate formative assessment data.
