Division is basically repeated fixed subtraction and, in many cases, when finding the difference between two integers you will have some left over numbers. When we are dividing, we call these left over numbers remainders. In this section of our site you will find printable pages that include lessons and practice problems that display division on a number line. It is a very helpful method to help students understand remainders quickly. In this section we ask students to graph division problems on number lines, representing both quotients and remainders. Students will also be asked to provide multiplication checks of their answers.
These worksheets explain how to use a number line to solve and check simple division problems. All problems have single-digit divisors and double-digit dividends.
