Step 2

This week you are revising your division facts and practising some of the division strategies that we have used this year. 


Spending more time on Times Tables Rock Stars this week will help you with the written work too! 


Remember if you are finding this work too easy, you can try Step 3. If you are finding it too tricky, you can try Step 1.

When revising multiplication last week, you were taught that multiplication is the same as repeated addition.

For example 3 x 5 is the same as 5 + 5 + 5 or 3 + 3 + 3 + 3 + 3.


Using ‘arrays’ this week will help you to revise the link between multiplication and division. An array is a visual representation of the multiplication process, usually using dots arranged into rows and columns. You can quickly learn that the number of rows multiplied by the number of columns equals the total number of dots.


You can also use arrays for division, by grouping the dots into rows or columns. Can you spot the link? 


Watch the YouTube video to explain more.
