The Division Family: Equal Sharing
Engaging Educational Play for Division Math

Meet the division family. They can be very divisive. Dividend never wants to share his total. Divisor is always trying to separate Dividend's goodies to share equally. Quotient gets on her siblings nerves because she is a know-it-all with all the answers.

Recommended Ages: 8 to 11       Run Time: Approx. 15 min.

Educational Script Length: Six 8 1/2" by 11" pages


The Division Family Children's Play Excerpt:

Dividend:   Hello, I’m Dividend.  I am the biggest number in the family.  I represent the total amount when we begin. For example, before we divide a dozen donuts equally, I have all twelve. 

Divisor:  I am Divisor.  I separate everything for us to share equally.  Since there are three of us, I get out three containers.  Then, we can separate or breakdown the twelve donuts into three groups with equal amounts.

Quotient:   I’m Quotient, (smugly) and I am the answer.  I tell them how many items we should put in each group or how many groups to create to share equally.  In this case, each of us would get four donuts.  Container 1 has (says letter D four times while counting to four on fingers) D-D-D-D donuts.  Then, container 2 has (says letter D four times and counts to four using fingers) D-D-D-D donuts.  Finally, container 3 has (says letter D four times while counting to four with fingers) D-D-D-D donuts.  If you count the Ds in each container, they add up to twelve.  (She counts the Ds.) 1D, 2D, 3D, 4D, 5D, 6D, 7D, 8D, 9D, 10D, 11D, and 12D.

Divisor:  So, we shared the donuts equally by all three of us getting four donuts.

Dividend:  Division is dividing a group of things into parts called shares.  I’m also the smartest among me and my sisters. 

Quotient:  No, you are noooot!  I provide all the answers.

Dividend:  Oh, I’m the smart one!  I am the total.

Divisor:  Guys, guys!   Does it really matter who’s the smartest?  I say we throw that thought away and go share some ice cream.

Dividend and Quotient:  Stay out of this!

Divisor:  As you can see, we are the Division Family
