Division

These division methods should support your child with their weekly homework on Study Ladder and optional times table practice on Times Tables Rockstars.

The methods increase in difficulty as you move down the page.

Repeated Subtraction

 

If you were trying to find the answer to 10/2 you could repeatedly subtract 2 from 10 until you get to 0. 

10-2-2-2-2-2 = 0 

You have 5 groups of 2

So 10/2 = 5 

or 10/5=2

Arrays

 

If you were trying to find the answer to 10/2 you could draw 2 rows and keep sharing 10 dots equally between them.

10 dots shared equally between 2 rows = 5 dots in each row. 

10/2=5

Bus Shelter/Stop 

 

This is the most difficult method for dividing. Make sure to layout numbers clearly and to include all numbers.
