Division

Using x2, x5 and x10 table knowledge

This week we will be concentrating on division in maths.

We are going to start this off on Monday by using our knowledge of our x2, x5 and x10 tables to help us complete simple division sums.

For example -

18 divided by 2  =

2 x what? = 18

We know that 2x9=18

So 18 divided by 2 = 9

Before you begin our task for Monday please look at the PPT below and practice some division. You can check your answers with the last slide.

## Division by 2, 5 and 10

Divsion - the Next Step

On Tuesday we are going to continue to look at division.

Today I am going to introduce dividing using a different symbol.

This is a difficult one to explain in words on the website (especially because it is a new concept) so please take a look at the 2 Seesaw videos I will post today. You must watch these videos first before you attempt your set task.

Division by 10

On Wednesday we are going to continue with dividing with a particular focus on dividing by 10.

This task will hopefully be made at little easier as you were learning your dividing by 10 facts this morning for your mental maths activity.

To divide by 10 you must move each digit (number) one place to the right.

20 divided by 10 = 2

x10 and dividing by 10

x100 and dividing by 100

On Thursday we are going to revise x10 (remember to add a 0) and recap on yesterdays task by dividing by 10 (remember to take away a 0) This first column in your task today should be quite straight forward.

*WHEN DIVIDING BY 10 YOUR DIGITS ARE MOVING ONE SPACE TO THE RIGHT.

The main focus of today will be x100 and dividing by 100. Please watch this wonderful girl in the clip below as she explains it in a more visual way.

First you x100 (add on two 00) and then divide by 100 (take away two 00)

*WHEN DIVIDING BY 100 YOU NEED TO MOVE THE DIGITS TWO PLACES TO THE RIGHT - as it is 100 times smaller.

On Friday I have given you a slot in our timetable for

'FINISH OFF FRIDAY'

Take this time to finish off any maths you have not completed throughout the week.

You can also use this time to finish off any literacy or topic work too.
