# Marbles and Pens

## Worksheet Description

This worksheet is a division exercise that uses visual models, specifically arrays of balls and pens, to help students understand the division process. The students are tasked with finding out how many groups can be made from the given objects, with each group containing a specific number of objects as indicated in the accompanying table. The table also has columns for students to fill in the total number of groups made and the number of items left over after making these groups. By completing this worksheet, students will be able to practice dividing objects into groups and understand the concept of remainders in division.

The worksheet is teaching students how to divide a set of items into equal groups and to determine if there are any items left over, a concept known as the remainder in division. This approach helps to visualize and conceptualize the division process, making it more tangible and comprehensible. The exercise enhances students’ counting and division skills while also introducing them to the idea that division may sometimes result in a group that is not complete, hence the ‘leftover’ or remainder. This foundational understanding is important for future mathematical concepts involving division and fractions.
