Year 3 Division
In maths we have now moved onto division. We are using various methods to solve our number problems.
Using multiplication facts to solve (inverse).
Short division (chunking)
Wow, How challenging is division?
The children today have shown great resilience towards their maths learning, with many taking risks, even when they were faced with the struggle of dividing to decimals and using the long division method.
They supported one another and also some went outside to ‘teach’ one another.
Some great learning values shown.
What a great maths lesson today! Every child in Monkey Puzzle was dividing successfully using the ‘bus stop’ method. Most were even stretching themselves to work beyond a remainder and into decimal numbers!
Well done Monkey Puzzle
It’s a new dawn
It’s a new day
It’s a new lesson
And we’re feeling good!
Palm Class got to grips with some very interesting vocabulary today.
In small groups, we had to read, interpret, understand and classify a wide range of multiplication and division words.
We discussed what we thought the words meant and identified other words with a similar meaning.
We spotted that ‘times’ and ‘multiply’ can be used in the same way. How could you use these words in a multiplication number sentence?
We also discussed why ‘repeated addition’ must be part of the multiplication word list too. Can you explain why?
Some of the tricky new vocabulary made us really think… Which new multiplication or division words have you remembered?
