OUR NEW DIVISION STRATEGY: ARRAYS

Our maths unit of work is focusing on division. Today we introduced a new format to drawing our array. Using concrete materials allowed everyone to understand the concept easily. Please continue to practice your array strategy at home and explain this concept to your parents.

  • Division can be shown using arrays. This creates a meaningful form of recording the operation.
  • We need to represent our array using more detail to distinguish the number to be shared from the number sharing.
