Wondrous Wednesday folks. Today we are reviewing DIVISION. Remember another word often used for division questions is SHARE or SHARED.
STARTER: Lets sing our 3x table rap that we learnt on Monday.
Review how to share/divide a number. Gather 10 Lego brick or pieces of pasta. Now lets share them out between two people. The number sentence would be 10 + 2 =
Now try doing these practically first. Draw 2 circles first.
12 + 2 = 6 + 2 = 8 + 2 =
You'll need to draw five circles this time.
10 + 5 = 15 + 5 = 20 + 5 =
How many circles will you need to draw for these?
12 + 3 = 15 + 3 = 18 + 3
Remember we talked about multiplication was commutative. We could "Flip it" and get the same answer.
e.g. 3 x 5 = 15 and 5 x 3 = 15. Well just like subtraction we cannot do this for division.
so lets take this multiplication calculation and show the division.
3 x 5 = 15
5 x 3 = 15
15 + 5 = 3
15 + 3 = 5
Notice how we put the larger number first for division.
So now take the multiplications from above and show the division for them.
I have found different work sheets for division. You DO NOT have to print them off as you can read them from the screen if you don't have a printer. Choose one or two that will challenge you.
