How to find odd and even numbers

To find an even number it has to be divisible by 2 exactly, such as 8 is divisible by 2 four times making it an even number.

To find an odd number it is not divisible by 2 exactly, such as 9 is divisible by 2 four and a half times making it an odd number.

Resources for physically finding odd and even numbers you could include: Tens frames, 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.
