Division Fact Practice for Fun and Creative Minds
“Why did the student wear glasses in math class?” To improve di-vision! Ba Dum Tss! Unfortunately most kids do not find division a laughing matter. In fact many struggle to understand the concept and hold onto basic fast answers. Instant recall and mastering division facts for fluency are needed for all sorts of higher math problems including long division, real-world problems, fraction work, solving algebraic equations, and order of operations (to just name a few)
But, your students are probably getting tired of practicing facts with flashcards, right? It can be redundant and ever so unexciting. Memorizing division quotients can be challenging for many kids. Therefore, If you can find just 10 minutes in the school day to incorporate fun, hands-on division activities, your students will thank you!
Here are a few DIVISION TIPS
* Remind students division is SHARING EQUALLY (I call division a boy. Boys like to “take things apart”. Division is the Cousin of Subtraction. Like subtraction, division takes apart.
* Students can think of multiplication facts when trying to solve division. Multiplication is the inverse to Division. (Inverse is a great vocabulary word to teach as well during this unit) I also call Multiplication the sister of Division. Both operations involve using equal groups.
* Practice Memorizing Division Facts with Games or Hand-On Art Supplies (Practice math facts with games can bo so much fun like the classic games “Memory” or “Go Fish”. Use sidewalk chalk during recess practicing facts on the blacktop or shaving cream at desks)
* Teach Divisibility Rules early. (some numbers have great divisibility rules – yes we all love our even numbers (divisible by 2) and numbers ending in 0 and 5 (divisible by 5) but do you know the divisibility rules of 3 and 9? (Add the digits together 51 is 5+1=6 Three likes six so 51 is divisible by three but not nine)
