Week beginning 28th September

Monday 28th September


On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, we will be learning a new method of division called long division. Watch the video above and look at the Long Division slides to learn how to do it and then have a go at the worksheets.

If you are in Mrs Playford's group, recap the method of short division (bus stop) before you start having a look at long division.

Before you do any work on factors, you need to check you know what factors are, and how to find factors of a number. Do the factors recap before moving onto finding common factors.


At school, we will set factors out like this:


eg: factors of 12 =



      1        x      12

      2        x       6

      3        x       4                     There is also  4 x 3, for example, but each number is only listed ONCE.


So, here, 12 has 6 factors, and they come in 3 factor pairs.


Some numbers have an odd number of factors, because they are square numbers.

Eg:           factors of 16 = 



        1       x      16

       2        x       8

       4                                      (It is 4 x 4, but 4 is only listed once, so 16 has 5 factors.)
