Lesson details

Key learning points

  1. Short division helps us to organise division by partitioning.
  2. The language of unitising helps to explain what is happening in short division.
  3. There are similarities between the representations of division and short division.
  4. The partial quotients are recorded above the dividend in the correct place value columns.

Common misconception

Pupils may incorrectly arrange the dividend or divisor and quotient.

Clear modelling. Ask children 'What does this number represent?' - 'The dividend and it is placed inside the division frame.'

Keywords

  • Short division - Short division is a formal method of division often used when dividing any number by a one digit number.

  • Dividend - The dividend is the amount that you want to divide up.

  • Divisor - A divisor is a number that divides the integer exactly (no remainder).

  • Quotient - A quotient is the result after division has taken place. It is the whole number part.

It can be useful to know multiplication facts. Begin by playing short games of multiplication and make links to the inverse. For example: 'If I know 10 × 6 = 60 then I also know 60 ÷ 10 = 6'
