Division is the inverse operation of multiplication. Many children believe they cannot divide, however we believe that they have not been able to make the link between both multiplication and division yet.
The aim of the Busy Book is for your child to begin to develop a number of fundamental strategies to understand Division, both on its own and as the inverse operation of multiplication. It works through strategies at increasing difficulties beginning with understanding division as sharing equally, before moving onto identifying and solving problems with remainders.
The Division Busy Book also allows children to complete an open-ended task to further extend and develop their skills. It is suited for children 7+ and can be adapted to suit children of varying abilities.
