LEARNING to make a difference

# Week 4

Activity 1

Revisit

1. 52 + 13 =
2. 85 + 21 =
3. 44 + 23 =
4. 22 + 35 =
5. 64 + 18 =
6. 71 + 29 =

Division

This week we are going to divide numbers by sharing objects to work out the answer.

EG:

How many do you have to begin with?   12 cubes

How many equal groups are you sharing between?   We are sharing between 2.

Share the objects between 2 boxes by putting 1 in the first box then 1 in the other box until all the objects have been shared equally.

How many are in each group?  6

How do you know that you have shared the objects equally? There are 6 in each box.

Now try these using objects and boxes or instead of boxes any containers or you can draw big circles to share the objects between.

1. Share 12 cubes/objects between 3 boxes.How many are in each box?

2. 24 children are put into 4 teams. Using the method shown work out how many children will be in each team.

3. There are 16 biscuits in a packet. 4 children share them. How many biscuits will each child have?

4. You have 18 sweets and share them between you and 2 of your friends. How many sweets will each of you have?

Activity 2

 Revisit     4 x 2 = 10 x 5 = 11 x 10 = 5 x 5 = 2 x 10 = 7 x 2 = 9 x 5 = Division   The symbol for divide looks like this  ÷    Tom draws a bar model to divide 20 into 4 equal groups. This is what it looks like:                                                                         He writes 20 ÷ 4 = 5.   Using the bar model like Tom work out the answers:   EG.   15 ÷ 3 = 5   15       20 ÷ 4 =   16 ÷ 2 =   18 ÷ 3 =   25 ÷ 5 =   14 ÷ 2 =   21 ÷ 3 =

Activity 3

 Revisit   Order from largest to smallest:   12, 86, 43, 23, 18, 54 87, 98, 67, 44, 99, 48 56, 65, 35, 76, 13, 23 75, 57, 44, 32, 19, 80 Division reasoning and problem solving
