Big Ideas: What you do with a remainder depends on the situation and what the remainder is. Remainders can be shared, dropped, or used to increase the quotient by 1 This lesson asks students to solve a series of problems involving division in which students must evaluate what the remainder means. Students will learn that based on the context of the division problem, the remainder might have to be split up further or it may imply that the quotient must be rounded up to the next nearest whole number. Vocabulary: remainder, dividend, divisor, quotient Special Materials: Index Cards
