Use arrays and practice problems to understand remainders.
Some division problems work out nicely.
Other division problems don't work out nicely.
Oh no! We can't split
circles into perfect groups of . We have some circles left over.
How many groups of
can we make?
How many circles remain? In other words, how many circles are not in a group?
