Division Games

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
