Free Y3 maths worksheet: Make number stories: division

using2.pngOne of the key elements in division is to recognise that a number of objects needs to be shared equally. To begin with this can be done on a ‘one for you, one for me’ basis. Some children become fixed on this and always think of division as sharing into 2. Therefore, it can still be useful to use practical objects to share into a number of groups, making sure that each group has an equal number in it.

By Year 3 children should also be recognising sharing or division is the inverse of multiplication. The maths worksheet can be answered on paper but it is probably even more worthwhile to do this orally and take it in turns to think of examples that match the number sentence.
