Missing Digit Division Worksheets

How Missing Digit Division Problems Help Students Think Critically - Who said mathematics has to be boring? Probably, mathematics is the only course that is all fun and interesting. As a whole is all about finding relationships, numbers, and the missing figures to make the unknown known. When students solve problems, they compute the numbers, explain and understand the concepts, derive formulas, and make assumptions. In its core, mathematics is mainly concerned with making assumptions with the help of prevailing definitions to solve a particular problem at hand. Students learn about Pythagorean theorems and its related formulas. In short, mathematics has a direct impact on the cognitive abilities of the students. Students who derive equations, formulae, learn them and then use them in different mathematical problems possess the ability to think critically and explain why a formula works a certain way. They possess the ability to trace the steps and define why one mathematical concept that might fit in one problem can not fit in the other problem. Not only can they solve a problem, but they can also define the logic behind approaching that problem using a particular process.

How Does That Go?

When you are doing division the top number (numerator) goes inside the "house" (long division symbol) and the bottom number (denominator) outside it. Switching these is a common error. To avoid switching, say the numbers as you write out the equation.

Technically in long division, both the expression 63 ÷ 9 and its answer are called the quotient. You can call the expression the quotient and the answer can be called the quotient solved. However, usually we just call the answer the quotient.
