Teaching division to beginners

When we teach division to primary children, we tend to introduce it as being a sharing operation where objects are divided into a number of groups of equal number. We also discuss that division has an opposite, multiplication. We talk about division being about separating groups, while its opposite, multiplication is about combining groups.

We often assess our children’s understanding by using worksheets which can be printed for each child or which can be projected onto a white board.

In this worksheet the children are asked to share the objects evenly between the crackers.

Download a copy worksheet under the ‘Try before you buy’ tab on the Brilliant Publications ‘How to Sparkle at Beginning Multiplication and Division‘ for 5 to 7 year olds page.

The book is supplied as a pdf download so is accessible 24/7. You could start planning for Christmas now!
