Lesson details

Key learning points

1. There is more than one way to partition a number.
2. When a number is partitioned into two parts the parts can be odd or even.

Common misconception

When using patterns to identify combinations, pupils may struggle to be systematic and not identify all options systematically.

Spend time exploring the value of recording combinations within a simple table. Encourage checking, e.g. the amount of counters totals six. Look for patterns and support children in spotting these.

Keywords

• Partition - To split a whole up into parts.
