## Breaking Down Division with Remainders

**Lesson by James Gumela**

**STANDARD**

**CCSS.MATH.CONTENT.4.NBT.6 **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.

**LESSON TIME**

30-45 minutes

**SUMMARY**

This lesson plan will explore how students interpret remainders in the context of a problem. They will learn how to divide and have a number leftover. Students will be using the concept of division and remainders. An instructional video will be presented as well as a PowerPoint presentation and an educational game that can be used to reinforce the concept of remainders with assessment data.

**TECHNOLOGY REQUIRED**

** **Device with web-browser (Chromebook, laptop or desktop computer); or iOS (iPhone/iPad) with access to Google apps.

## Lesson

### Watch Video

In division, remainders occur when a number can’t be evenly divided. This video will help the students understand the concept of remainders.

### Break Down Long Division in a Presentation

This Google slides presentation: Division with remainders reviews the parts of a division problem; quotient, division and divisor, then works a sample problem step by step. The presentation ends with a practical question in a word problem- when you have a remainder, what do you do with the amount that remains?

### Play a Game – Making Camp Dakota

Making Camp Dakota follows a family at a pow-wow as the children learn about Dakota culture through stories from their elders and apply their long division skills along the way.

#### Differentiated Instruction

**GAME: Making Camp Premium**

Have students play Making Camp Premium using these icons. Students who struggle with this standard will receive individual instruction within the game to teach and reinforce this concept.

**ASSESSMENT: Making Camp Premium Reports**
