Dividing Large Numbers Part III: Exit Pass
Digital Tool/Resource:
Division Exit Pass
Web Address – URL:
Overview:

This activity should be used at the end of a lesson or unit on the division of whole numbers. This activity should be used as an exit slip to check students' understanding of how to find quotients of larger numbers using strategies based on place value. 

This activity results from the ALEX Resource Development Summit.

  Associated Standards and Objectives  
Content Standard(s):
Mathematics
MA2019 (2019)
Grade: 4
12. Use strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and/or the relationship between multiplication and division to find whole-number quotients and remainders with one-digit divisors and up to four-digit dividends.

a. Illustrate and/or explain quotients using equations, rectangular arrays, and/or area models.
Learning Objectives:

Students will find whole-number quotients by using strategies based on place value.

  Strategies, Preparations and Variations  
Phase:
After/Explain/Elaborate
Activity:

Once students have investigated and explored the concept of finding whole-number quotients by using strategies based on place value, this activity can be used to give the students an opportunity to explain their thinking and elaborate on the concept. 

Students will complete the Division Exit Pass. Allow students to complete this activity individually then share their thinking with a partner or group of students. Students should explain their reasoning. This exit pass will assess the student's ability to use strategies to find a quotient of a whole-number division problem. Students should use strategies based on place value. 

This activity can be used as an assessment or the teacher can lead a class discussion to allow students to share their reasoning with their classmates. 

Assessment Strategies:

Student recordings on the Division Exit Pass sheet will be used as a formative or summative assessment to make sure students find whole-number quotients by using strategies based on place value.


Advanced Preparation:

This activity should be used at the end of a lesson on division. Students should have prior knowledge on how to find a quotient using a strategy based on place value.
