# The divider: with or without remainders

TLF ID L2006

Solve divisions such as 147/7 or 157/6 (some have remainders). Use a partitioning tool to help solve randomly generated divisions. Learn strategies to do complex arithmetic in your head. Split a division into parts that are easy to work with, use times tables, then solve the original calculation.

#### Educational details

Key learning objectives
• Students use known division facts to solve division problems.
• Students use multiplicative partitioning strategies to solve division problems.
Educational value
• Allows students to explore partitioning strategies for solving divisions.
• Provides opportunities for students to recognise factors and multiples, and recall multiplication and division facts.
• Allows students to solve division problems with and without remainders.
• Encourages repeated use through randomisation of division problems.
• Provides options for looking up times tables during learning activities.
• Includes text feedback via an animated character.
• Provides an option to print a worksheet that records how the student used the partitioning tool to solve the equation.
