Your students will build and with Long Division with these task cards! This resource allows you to have peace of mind that students are practicing long division correctly while also .
There are 20 word problem cards. Each problem also has 3 key cards, labeled Step 1, Step 2 and Step 3, so that students can check their work at each natural checkpoint in the traditional division algorithm.
When students work through an entire problem (or worse yet, an entire page of problems) before being able to check their work, small mistakes compound into big problems. Students can quickly feel defeated when they have to erase all of the work that was done after a mistake early in the problem. Students who practice incorrectly must spend more time unlearning the wrong way to learn the correct way. Practice makes permanent, so let’s make sure students are practicing correctly.
