8 Free Long Division Color by Number Pages | Fun Activities

Division is a fun thing to do. And if we add coloring activities to it then it becomes more enjoyable. That’s why today we have brought you 5 fun long division color by number activities.

My oldest is incredible at math. Even new concepts rarely require more than a five-minute conversation and he is ready to go off and try it. And when he comes back, surprise, he has them all right.

But we have finally found his Achilles heel. Long division.

It is one of the few skills that we have had to spend extra time on, and go back and practice regularly. Even though a long division can be long and tedious, I have wanted it to be fun for him.

So today I have some fun and simply solvable and coloring long division pages….because let’s face it. Even our older kiddos like to color. So, cutting the long discussion, let’s go through the following fun long division color by number activities.

Traditional Division Math

Now most of us know how to do the traditional division, but sometimes students need special reminders to help them remember all the steps.

And there are some great ones. Basically, what we want them to remember is that they need to divide, multiply, subtract, check, or compare that the divisor is larger than the remainder, bring down the next number, and of course, start all over again.

That is a lot to remember, so these fun mnemonic devices help our children remember the steps.

Partial Quotients Division Math

I always like to provide my student’s options. Everyone thinks about math differently, and if they are able to do mental math you may be surprised at the different ways they come upon an answer.

So should we only teach one method, when another way may be the key to unlocking a door for them? As a public school teacher and now a home school mom, I would teach two or three methods.

Once they had a pretty good grasp on both ways, I let them choose which one works best for them.

My oldest son has chosen partial difference while my middle child prefers traditional subtraction. He also prefers lattice multiplication, and partial quotients when dividing.

I look forward to which method my middle child chooses.

How to Do Partial Quotients in Long Division

It may sound scary, but it is not. Let’s look at this problem. We are dividing 235 into five equal groups. In partials, we begin by looking at the 2 and asking ourselves what it really stands for.

Well, it stands for 200. Our next step is to ask _____ x 5 = 200. Now, this is the best part of partial products.

As long as they don’t go over, it can be any number. I can do 10 x 5 = 50 over and over again till I get the right answer. Or we can do it the easy way and say 40 x 5 = 200.

Then we put it in the division problem like this. Now, all we have left is 35. And we ask the question again. ____ x 5 = 35.

Well, we know that 7 x 5 = 35 so we put in the information like this. Now, all that is left is finding the answer. And we do this by adding up all the factors in the right-hand corner.

And we see that the answer is 47. It is that easy.
