WALT: recap knowledge of multiplication and division.

Over the past 2 weeks, we have been learning to multiply and divide numbers by 2, 5 and 10. We have looked at these separately and have learnt methods to solve problems. This lesson, we will have a mixture of multiplication and division calculations using either 2, 5 or 10 knowledge. You need to look carefully at the question and apply the appropriate method to solve.


When you look at word problems, try to picture in your head what is being asked of you. Extract key numbers and identify which operation you need to use to complete the calculation and solve the problem.
