Main Lesson - Today we are going to solve some problems using the skills we learnt from yesterdays lesson on division.
Q. Can you think of any other words that mean division?
Q. What type of sum can you use to check if the answer to your division sum is correct?
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.
Lets try one together below -
The milkman has 20 bottles of milk, if he delivers 4 bottles to each house, how many houses will he deliver to?
To find the answer to this problem we first need to highlight the numbers that we are going to be using - 20 and 4
We need to find how many houses he will deliver to so we will need to divide the number 20 by 4.
How many times does 4 go into 20?
Complete the word problems on the sheet below. Use the number line to help you find the answers.
Once you have completed the first set of problems try the challenge below.
