How to divide numbers

To divide numbers into each other you can use a variety of written methods such as the bus stop method, or a number line; or you could use a mental arithmetic method.

Resources for physically dividing numbers  into each other could include: a 100 square, Cuisinaire rods, Numicon, Base 10 or simply use cubes or counters.

 Try using more than one method and practice checking your answers with a calculator.
