Division - Problem Solving
Warm Up - Put your division skills to the test with the Daily Ten - click the link below and then select , level 2 - division, ÷ 2 tables up to 10
Main Lesson - Today we are going to solve some problems using the skills we learnt from yesterdays lesson on division.
I want you to read the worded problems on the sheet below and see if you can work out what the division sum is and the answer to it. You can use objects for counting to help you find the answers.
Lets try the first one together -
Kian has 16 football stickers. He shares them between his 2 friends. How many stickers do they get each?
We first need to identify the numbers that are in the word problem. Which are 16 and 2.
The word problem is asking to share 16 between 2 groups. We now need to put these numbers into a number sentence.
To find the answer to the number sentence we now need to use our counters or objects to help us.
Count out 16 counters and divide them into 2 equal groups.
(Remember equal groups means that both groups must have the same amount in each!)
Once you have divided all of the counters equally count how many are in each group.
The amount that is in each group is you answer!
16÷2 = 8
Now have a go at the word problems on the sheet below -
