25 March: Math: Division Leftovers

Division with Remainders: “Leftovers Game”- If a sibling or parent is willing to play with you, grab them for this game! If not, you can play it on your own. Here is a link for some digital dice: https://www.online-stopwatch.com/chance-games/roll-a-dice/ If you have tiles, counters, or anything that you can use as counters, use them to help you visualise! 2 players, die, 20 counters 1. Start with the number 20 - put 20 counters on the table if you have them. 2. The first player rolls the die, takes the 20 counters and divides them by the number on the die (Example: I roll a 3, I divide 20 by 3 (20 / 3) - divide 20 into 3 equal groups). 3. If there are leftover tiles, the first player keeps them. 4. The second player writes the math sentence. (Example: 20 / 3 = 6 remainder 2) 5. Switch roles, now player 2 divides the number left by the number they roll. (Example: there are 18 counters left after round 1 (6 groups of 3 is 18). Player 2 rolls a 4. 18 / 4 = 4 remainder 2) 6. Continue until there aren’t any tiles left. If this gets simple for you, challenge yourself by raising the start number to 50... then 100! Take a picture of one of your game sheets with all the number sentences and upload it to this activity.
