There are a number of different things you can do to increase your level of success with these. Start by making sure you understand all parts of a simple division equation. There are three and sometimes four key parts in any division problem. The dividend is the amount you want to divide up. The divisor is the number of groups you are breaking the dividend into. The outcome of this operation is called the quotient. If there is any value left over it is termed the remainder. When teaching division for the first time, we would suggest a few things that you should take under consideration. The first suggestion is to make sure that students have a very good understanding of their times tables before moving on to division. The next suggestion we have is to completely leave out the concept of remainders until students are pretty strong with this skill. When performing quotients with single digits it is definitely helpful if there are not remainders. These problems do not result in left over remainders.
These worksheets offer students explanations and opportunities to practice simple division using single digit divisors. Some problems include remainders. The worksheets toward the top of this page are in a large and very legible font, great for beginners. As you scroll down, more and more problems will be available on the page. Obviously the pages towards the bottom are for students that understand what they are doing. Students will divide simple dividends by a single digit divisor and determine if there is a remainder.
