Word problems using Division

Overall rating 4 out of 54.4 (28 ratings)

Last updated 22 April 2014, created 25 October 2012, viewed 39,441

When teaching the 'chunking' method of division, I could not find any decent word problems for my class, so I had to make some up. Here they are, with answers, for anyone else in the same situation. Eight questions, getting trickier, ending with two-step problems.
