There is no doubt that most children find division harder than multiplication, yet there is little real reason for this to be so. Most division questions can be turned on their head to be made to look like multiplication. For example:
30 ÷ 5 =?? can be thought as what number times 5 makes 30?
?? ÷ 6 = 7 can be thought of as 6 times 7.
60 ÷ ?? = 10 can be thought of as what number times 10 makes 60?
The key to success with division is to have a really good knowledge of times tables.
This worksheet looks at these types of division question, all with easy numbers and no remainders and is a good assessment sheet to see if division is understood and tables known.
