Sample Activity: Division with Remainders
- Give students a dividend that will have a remainder when divided by three.
- Have them find and stand on the dividend on the mat.
- Have them jump and count the number of spaces it takes to reach the next lowest multiple of three.
- The number of spaces is the remainder number.
- Have them hold it up on their fingers.
- Then, have them follow the procedure for dividing while keeping the initial “remainder” number on their fingers.
Example: Give them the number 23. They will find and stand on 23 and take two jumps to land on 21. Holding 2 on their fingers, they then jump the multiples to zero, counting how many jumps it takes out loud. When they get to zero, they recite, “Twenty-three divided by three is seven remainder two.”
