Word problems using Division

Overall rating 4 out of 54.4 (26 ratings)

Last updated 29 March 2014, created 25 October 2012, viewed 38,940

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.
