This is how we divide (share) in year 2. Please note divide can also link to multiplication; not only can it be sharing into groups, it can also be how many of the groups can create the whole. The second method is more efficient when dividing by 10, as drawing a sharing picture when the whole number is 80, can take an awfully long time!! 🙂
Multiplication Written Method
Have a look at how we answer multiplication calculations in Year 2. Some children may not need the written method, once they start learning their tables as facts 🙂
Written Method For Subtraction
Here is how we subtract, using ‘base 10’ 🙂 Some children will not need the written method and will calculate mentally.
Written Method For Addition
Have a look at how we use ‘base 10’ in our drawings, to help us add two 2 digit numbers together 🙂 Some children may not need the written method, and will have progressed to doing it mentally.
