Dividing by 10

October 16th, 2017 · 2 Comments · Uncategorized

In year 5, today we moved on to dividing by 10, 100 or 1000s using some apparatus to help us. 

We found sharing out the apparatus really useful, as it helped us see that in order to divide by 10 we have to share the apparatus out in 10 groups. We also found that when dividing by 10, all we have to do is move the numbers down one place in the place value chart. 

What have you been doing in maths this week?
