I hope these explanations and activities had helped you to solve some questions. See you soon

Dividing with remainders

To divide is to make equal groups of a certain amount or to make certain amount of groups of the same amount of elements.
Doing this process you might find some cases where some elements can´t be grouped, this is what we called remainder.
For example: 47 ÷ 9, means to make groups of 9 with 47 elements.

So: 47 ÷ 9 = 5 groups and 2 left over.

Division with remainders practice

Dividing facts

A fact family is a set of multiplying and dividing sentences to related 3 numbers.
For example if you know 7 × 8 = 56, so it´s possible to say that:
a. 8 × 7 = 56,
b. 56 ÷ 7 = 8 and
c. 56 ÷ 8 = 7

This is the first step we use to multiply.

Fact families practice

Problem solving

Let´s try to find the solution of the following problem.

4. In a month, Ms Torres drives about 590 miles to her job. About how many miles does she drive in a year?

HINT: How many months are there in a year?


First of all is important to remember the elements in a multiplying sentence.
Factor X Factor = Product.
The factors are the numbers which the operation is acting over and the prodcut is the answer of a multiplication.

According to multiplying theory , answer the following questions:
1. What is the product of a number by zero?
2. What is the product of a number by one?
3. Is the product always greater than either factors?

Math Class: Problem solving

Welcome to math and geometry class. Today we are going to work on problem solving but if you have any questions about geometry feel free to ask.
So here we go, you´ll need a pencil and a sheet of paper or at least a calculator.
