Remainders 

What about those remainders?

Question 1

Last lesson we saw that 276÷12276 \div 12 equals 2323.

Suppose we tried to compute 277÷12277\div 12 instead. What would we see?

Let's try it!

As you play with division in dots-and-boxes you might decide that it is actually good to always work from left to right in case there are remainders: we’d like all the “extra” dots we see appear in the lower places, the ones and tens places, rather than the higher thousands places, for instance. (But even if you don’t choose to do this, you won’t go wrong! Unexplosions will always be possible to help you out.)
