Maths 10.01.2020

Today in maths we used counters and cubes to help us solve some division with remainder word problems.

The children worked in pairs to count out and share out the counters to solve the problems. This was excellent practice fro them in preparation for next week when we look at dividing by 10, 100 and 1000 and learn all about the formal written method of short division.
