Division Games that will teach your child how to divide with:
Anything/1 = itself
This is super easy..of course. The equation actually gives you the answer. Any number multiplied by 1 always equals itself. One group of a certain number is that number. 345 groups of 1 is 345! Try a few, start with small numbers.
Your child will most likely just need help looking at identifying the 1 facts. When they get the hang of it try big numbers. What is 66000 / 1? Think: 1 and what factor =66000?
They will need practice reading the equation ( do it aloud) and thinking backward). Always start with the largest number ( for our purposes).
Note to Parents:
Division is splitting into equal parts or groups. It is the result of "fair sharing".
Example: there are 12 chocolates, and 3 friends want to share them, how do they divide the chocolates?
Answer: They should get 4 each.
We use the ÷ symbol, or sometimes the / symbol to mean divide:
12 / 3 = 4
12 ÷ 3 = 4
