Review: Divide and Ride (MathStart: Level 3)

User Review  - Jenny - Goodreads

A great introduction to dividing with remainders...explained though a story of 11 kids riding different rides at a carnival. This book not only describes the abstract idea of diving through a relatable storyline , but also includes models of the math at the bottom of each page. Read full review

Review: Divide and Ride (MathStart: Level 3)

User Review  - Jennifer - Goodreads

Great way to show division and what remainders are. Could use this to introduce writing remainders as fractions. A little young for sixth grade, but could be used with lower level students. 6th Grade Common Core Standards: None *Available at Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Libraries* Read full review
