### Resources for Division (4.NBT.B.6, 5.NBT.B.6, 5.NBT.B.7)

What do the Common Core State Standards expect of middle grade students? Fourth graders must "find whole number quotients with remainders with up to four-digit dividends and one-digit divisors" (4.NBT.B.6) while fifth graders are tasked with finding "whole number quotients with remainders with up to four-digit dividends and two-digit divisors" (5.NBT.B.6), as well as dividing decimals to the hundredths (5.NBT.B.7).

I'd like to share some engaging resources for teaching and reinforcing division. Let's start with activities that help students learn their division facts. Do your students like Bingo? If so, try Fill It In Bingo by Jan Gervais. They can also play games online at Math Playground, Fun4theBrain, or SheppardSoftware.com.

Long division can be tricky. Using this Long Division Interactive Math Foldable by Creative Critters will help your students understand the process. To follow up, try some division task cards by Chili Math. These are available for division by one- or two- digit divisors. If they like to color, check out this long division picture by Briana Burke.

It's hard to separate multiplication and division. Multiplication and Division Word Problem Stations by Elizabeth Hudgins provides extra practice with practical, everyday problems while MathBall Multiplication and Division by Elements of Elementary perfects students' "game."

A variety of great activities are also available to reinforce addition, subtraction, multiplication, and/or division of decimals:

Thanks to all of my friends at Teachers pay Teachers for sharing their resources with us today!
