The first step is to choose the type of division flashcards you would like to print. I have 2 different versions for you to choose from. They are both a horizontal format.

Horizontal Version 1

Version 1 looks like this:

13 sheets of card stock with printed division flashcards.  12 horizontal flash cards per page. Use scissors to cut out and have division flashcards for 0-12.  It has the dividend, followed by the division symbol, and then the divisor.  The division sign of these free printable math flashcards is the line with a dot over and under the line.

It has the dividend, followed by the division symbol, and then the divisor. The answers are on the back.

How to Print these Double Sided Flashcards

Follow the easy to print instructions below.

There’s 3 different printing instructions. Use the one that is applicable to you.

  1. printing double sided with a printer that has the option to print double sided
  2. printing double sided manually
  3. printing flashcards without printing the answers on the back

Printing Flashcards WITH Double Sided Printer

Start by: 

  1. putting your card stock (13 pages) in the printer
  2. open up the 26 page pdf that you previously downloaded (above)
  3. Select “File” and then “Print”
  4. A print window will open.

These are the settings you’ll want to set. Make sure to select:

  1. Actual size
  2. All pages
  3. Print on both sides of paper
  4. Flip on short edge
  5. When your settings are the way you want, press the “Print” button.

Once the flashcards have completed printing, cut them out along the lines.

Printing Double Sided Manually

Not to worry if you don’t have a printer that prints on both sides automatically. Printing on both sides manually is pretty easy as well. Just follow these steps:

  1. put your card stock (13 pages) in the printer
  2. open up the 26 page pdf that you previously downloaded (above)
  3. select “File” and then “Print”
  4. A print window will open.
  1. change ‘pages to print’ to page 1
  2. select actual size
  3. When your settings are the way you want, press the “Print” button.
  4. Make sure your printer output tray is extended if you have one. You just don’t want the paper to fall to the floor.
  5. Once it has finished printing, open up your paper tray again and put your card stock page back into the printer.
    Do not flip the card stock over or turn the card stock in any way. Just lift the card stock, and place it back into the printer in the exact way it came out of the printer.
  6. Close paper tray.
  7. On the pdf, once again, select “File” and then “Print”
  8. Change ‘pages to print’ to page 2
  9. Make sure actual size is selected.
  10. Press the print button.

Now that the zero page is printed, let’s print the rest of the pages:

  1. Once again, select “File” and then “Print” on the pdf.
  1. Change ‘pages to print’ to pages 3-25.
  2. Select ‘odd pages only’.
  3. Make sure actual size is selected.
  4. Press the print button.
  5. After all 12 pages have finished printing, and are in the printing tray: lift the card stock, and place it back into the printer in the exact way it came out of the printer. Do not flip the card stock over, change the order of the sheets, or turn the card stock in any way.
  6. Close paper tray.
  7. On the pdf, once again, select “File” and then “Print”
  1. Change ‘pages to print’ to page 4
  2. Change the number of copies to 12.
  3. Make sure actual size is selected.
  4. Click on print.

When the flashcards have completed printing, cut them out along the lines.

Printing Flashcards Without Answers on Back

If you decide you don’t want to bother with printing the answers on the back, then follow these easy printing instructions:

  1. put your card stock (13 pages) in the printer
  2. open up the 26 page pdf that you previously downloaded (above)

How to Use These Division Flashcards

I’ve been using these printable math flash cards to help my 5th grader master these basic division facts.

Here are some ideas on how to use division flashcards:

  1. Use them with multiplication flashcards.
  2. With containers labeled from 0 – 12
  3. Around the World game if you have a classroom or multiple kids learning division

With Multiplication Flashcards

We use the division flashcards in combination with multiplication flashcards.

I chose to print our flashcards using 5 colors of cardstock. I decided to use the same color for the same times table and divisor for both the multiplication and division flashcards. For example, I used:

  • color #1 for 0 & 1 (times tables & divisor)
  • color #2 for 5, 10 & 11
  • color #3 for 2, 3 & 4
  • color #4 for 6, 7 & 8
  • color #5 for 9 & 12

I started my daughter with color #2. The first day I gave her the 5 times table multiplication flashcards to master independently.

She will go through the pile and if she knows the answer fairly quickly she puts the card in one pile. If she doesn’t, she looks at the answer on the back, and puts the card in a separate pile. She continues this way until she thinks she knows the times table well.

When she feels confident, she lets me know. Then I add the division flashcards to her pile and shuffle them together. So for the 5 times table, it would be the same color flashcards with the divisor of 5.

I go through this new multiplication and division flashcard pile with her. I put any that I feel she doesn’t know as well in a separate pile to go over with her again. Usually it goes pretty quick.

The next day I give her the next times table. When it’s time for me to go over the pile with her, I will mix into the pile the previously mastered flashcards of the same color.

This continues until we’ve gone through all the flashcards from 0-12.

Using Containers Labeled from 0-12

Another method for individual student practice of division facts uses containers labeled from 0-12.

You need 13 containers each labeled with one of the numbers.

The answer (or quotient) for each of the division flashcards will be a number from 0 to 12.

The child can then go through their pile of flashcards and drop each card in the container with the number of its quotient.

Afterwards, they can check their answers by looking at the answers of the cards in each container, verifying that the answers match the number of its container.

You can use whatever type of container you choose. We’ve used:

  • glass jars or yogurt containers
  • 3 (or 4) pieces of letter size sheets of paper cut into quarters. Each quarter has a number written on it.
  • 13 envelopes (each numbered) taped to a piece of cardboard or attached to fabric. Cardboard or fabric used or hung vertically.

We used the envelopes when we’ve traveled. It was an easy way to practice math facts on the go.

Around the World Game

This math game works good in a classroom or group scenario. Ideally this would be best with at least 4 kids.

Students can be sitting at their desk or in a circle.

One child stands next to a sitting child. The parent or teacher shows the division flashcard to the 2 children.

The first child to have the correct answer continues “around the world” and goes to stand beside the next child.

The child to answer incorrectly or not as fast as the other sits down at the desk.

If desks are in rows, usually the first child at the front of the far left or far right row gets up and stands beside the child sitting at the desk behind him. Play continues down that row and up the next and so. When the end (or the last kid) is reached, play continues back to the first in this circular pattern.

Around the world can be played with any math flashcards.
