In this lesson, students learn about modular arithmetic and how to apply it in real world situations involving remainders. Students are introduced to modular notation (# mod #) and learn how to perform modular arithmetic. Lists of prerequisites, suggested lesson outlines and links to individual activities and to worksheets and discussions are included.

This interactive Java applet, based on the familiar game Connect Four, gives students practice in applying order of operations. Two players take turns evaluating expressions involving the four basic operations (addition, subtraction, multiplication and division). If correct, the player places a black or red checker on the board with the goal of connecting four in a row ( horizontally, vertically, or diagonally) before the opponent does. Players choose from four levels of difficulty; they can adjust the timing feature and whether to involve exponents and/or parentheses.

This interactive Flash game helps students understand remainders while developing reasoning skills and facility with multiplication and division facts. Playing against the computer, the student creates division equations from 3 randomly-generated numbers (1-6) with the goal of making the largest remainders.

In this 7-minute video grade 4 teacher Todd Hausman explains and demonstrates how his students apply their understanding of elapsed time and the time/rate/distance relationship to follow the progress of mushers in the Iditarod sled dog race in Alaska. Using real-time tracking data, students collaborate to find the mean (average) traveling speed of their chosen Iditarod musher, and predict their arrival time at checkpoints. This resource includes a lesson plan and transcript of the video (downloadable .doc files) and a link to the teacher page of the official Iditarod website.

This interactive Java application helps students understand the partial quotients algorithm of division in the context of dividing food equally. Students select a character and a type of food as well as the quantities of characters (divisor, 1-50) and food (dividend, 1-500) – or have the applet make selections randomly. The applet creates a story problem and leads users through the algorithm one step at a time, using questions related to the meaning of each step, and displays graphics illustrating the steps. Remainders can be expressed as whole numbers or fractions. An online calculator is available to help with calculations.
