## Lesson details

### Key learning points

- When we are dividing by 2, you can use the 2 times table to find the number of groups or the number in each group.
- 3 twos are equal to 6, so 6 divided into groups of 2 is equal to 3
- 3 twos are equal to 6, so 6 divided into 2 groups is equal to 3 in each group.

### Common misconception

Children misunderstanding the difference between partitive and quotative division when discussing the problems.

Although they will result in the correct answers, the calculation itself will not accurately reflect the problem. Ensure children initially describe each problem and represent it visually so that they can see whether they are grouping or sharing.
