What can be better then when snow is suppose to fall and we get to go home early. These are great days. I spent the afternoon cleaning and of course doing school work.
So one of the issues my students ALWAYS have is what they should do with a remainder when dividing. In the earlier grades they get so use to just saying R3 or R5 and they truly do not understand what it means.
They need to know it is the leftover or it might be the piece of the whole. AND when solving word problems sometimes we drop it, use it, or we just forget about it.
These task cards will help them. There is also a poster or handout to remind them what to do...CHECK THEM OUT
