This activity should be used after the students have been taught division strategies. This activity can be used as an assessment or extra practice for solving division word problems.This activity results from the ALEX Resource Gap Project.
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. Unpacked Content Evidence Of Student Attainment:Students: When given division problems with one-digit divisors and up to four-digit dividends, Find quotients with remainders using strategies based on place value, properties of operations, and the relationship between multiplication and division. Illustrate quotients using a rectangular array and/or area model, and explain the connection of the visual model to the equation.Teacher Vocabulary:Quotient Dividend Divisor Divide Multiply Multiple Equation Remainder Area model Greatest multiple Decompose Compose Array Properties of operations Unknown factor Partial quotientKnowledge:Students know: How to decompose and compose numbers in a variety of ways using place value and the properties of operations to demonstrate a variety of strategies for division. Division can be described as an unknown factor problem. A variety of contextual situations can be represented with a division equation.Skills:Students are able to: Use strategies based on place value to find whole number quotients and remainders. Use the properties of operations to find whole number quotients and remainders. Use arrays and area models to find whole number quotients and remainders. Illustrate division situations with rectangular arrays and area models. Write an equation to represent a division situation.Understanding:Students understand that: Division expressions represent The number of objects in each group when the total number is partitioned evenly into a given number of groups. The number of groups when the total number is partitioned into groups that each contain a given number.Diverse Learning Needs: Essential Skills:Learning Objectives: M.4.12.1: Define fraction, numerator and denominator. M.4.12.2: Recognize fraction 1/b as the quantity formed by 1 part when a whole is partitioned into b equal parts. M.4.12.3: Identify the parts of a fraction a/b as the quantity formed by a parts and size 1/b. M.4.12.4: Recognize fractions as numerals that may represent division problems. M.4.12.5: Label numerator, denominator, and fraction bar. M.4.12.6: Identify parts of a whole with two, three, or four equal parts. M.4.12.7: Recognize that equal shares of identical wholes need not have the same shape. M.4.12.8: Distinguish between equal and non-equal parts. Prior Knowledge Skills:Recognize fractions as lengths from zero to one. Represent whole numbers as lengths from 0 on a number line diagram with equally spaced points corresponding to the numbers 0, 1, 2…, and represent whole-number sums and differences within 100 on a number diagram. Identify a number line. Recognize whole numbers as lengths from zero to one. Represent whole numbers as lengths from 0 on a number line diagram with equally spaced points corresponding to the numbers 0, 1, 2…, and represent whole-number sums and differences within 100 on a number diagram. Identify a number line. Label the fractions on a pre-made number line diagram. Represent whole numbers as lengths from 0 on a number line diagram with equally spaced points corresponding to the numbers 0, 1, 2…, and represent whole-number sums and differences within 100 on a number diagram. Recognize a number line diagram with equally spaced points. Compare length using nonstandard units to determine which is longer.
Learning Objectives:

I can solve word problems with whole-number quotients and remainders.

Strategies, Preparations and Variations
 Phase: After/Explain/Elaborate Activity: Students will complete the activity Nursery Rhyme Division Problems. This activity is best used after students have developed strategies for the division of whole numbers. It should be used as an assessment or as extra practice. Assessment Strategies: The students' division strategies on the activity Nursery Rhyme Division Problems will assess the learning objective. Advanced Preparation: The teacher will need to print paper copies of the activity Nursery Rhyme Division Problems. It is best for every student to have a paper copy of this activity in order to show their division strategies. Variation Tips (optional): Notes or Recommendations (optional): This activity might be challenging for students that are still struggling with mastery of dividing large numbers. The activity was purposely written to become more challenging as the student progresses through the activity. This will allow students to work at their own pace and ability level. It is okay for a student to not finish this activity. This will allow students that need more challenging problems to be challenged but also meet the needs of students that need to work at a slower pace.
