As we get to the end of term here is a page which can be used to check that children can use a range of methods to solve division problems mentally.
It is important the tables are known so that the facts can be used. For example if it is known that 6 x 6 = 36, then 6 x 60 can be quickly worked out as 360, and in turn 360 divided by 6 is 60.
Another useful tip is when dividing by 5 mentally it is often possible to divide by 10 and then double the answer.
Please note: Factors need to have been taught before trying this page.
