Nowadays teachers can use an enormous amount of internet resources to create puzzles. Just be creative. It is fairly easy to turn a multiplication table, or any form of math content, in a math word search or crossword puzzle. Let students calculate the words to be found first and then complete the puzzle. Kids love to solve puzzles, it´s how our brains are designed. Marzano states that our brain functions are better simulated when we actively have to fill in blanks or missing pieces of information.
Teachers often assume that since they spent a few minutes showing the class how to do a long-division problem, that every student in the class now knows how to work a long-division problem. Not necessarily true, and a good teacher will follow up on every student to make sure he or she understands each concept before adding new ones. I have always believed that most kids can learn just about anything if they are exposed to it using familiar surroundings and techniques and encouraged to proceed at their own pace.
The Internet is more often used in teaching these days, and as a teacher you shouldn´t feel like you´re ´slacking´ by letting your students use the computers to continue their learning. Through a variety of teaching resource websites you´ll be able to access a variety of mathematical computer games that make division into fun activities. These games can be continued at home, and you can even implement computer games and other division and math related games into their homework activities.
