Year 4 Make Exchanges!

Easy Blog Photo
Year 4 are continuing to learn about division. Today we are thinking about what happens if we cannot share our tens equally. For example, if we did 45 divided by 3, we could share 3 of the tens equally, but would have another ten left over! Year 4 said that we can exchange that ten for ten ones, and add it to the 5 ones that we have from our original number. So, we would then have 15 ones that we can share equally between 3 groups. The children worked really well using counters to show how we exchange.

Great work Year 4!
