# Lesson 11 Division Game Day

Let’s play division games.

## Warm-up Number Talk: Divide 48

Find the value of each expression mentally.

## Activity 1 Play Race to 1

Directions for Race to 1

On your first turn:

Roll a number cube. The number you roll is your divisor. (If you roll a 5, roll again.)

Choose one number from the top row of your table. Divide it by your divisor.

Write a division expression and record the quotient in the table. Your turn is done.

On all your other turns:

Roll a number cube. The number you roll is your divisor. (If you roll a 5, roll again.)

Choose either a quotient from one of your past turns or a new number from the top row of the table. Divide it by your divisor.

Write a division expression and record the quotient in the table.

The first player to get a quotient of 1 wins.
