Devious Division

DSCF1341

This week in Year 4 we have been tackling the difficult and devious area of maths that is division. We did a lot of practical sharing using counters and were introduced to the method of chunking. Using both methods we were able to solve division problems, even those that had a remainder. Once we realised we could use our times tables to help us solve division, we were flying with it. Some of us even began to use the bus stop method!

  1. “Chunking” and the “bus stop method” – both sound very ominous, love for Year 4 to come and explain these methods. Well done guys!!
