DIFFERENTIATED DIVISION FOR 4 GROUPS
When teaching division this week, I struggled to find a resource in which I needed. In Mathematics, I like a resource to be differentiated, while allowing the children to move up to a higher set themselves, if they find the work too easy.
This resource allows children to make great progress in one lesson as they can be challenged constantly, rather than completing page after page of the same type of calculation.
My class have not yet moved onto long division, so it is differentiated by:
Bronze: No remainders or carry ons.
Silver: Harder division calculations with some remainders.
Gold: All with remainders and involving all times tables.
Upon finishing the gold section, there is an additional section called platinum. This section allows a further challenge for children in completing ‘missing calculation’ division questions, ‘reasoning and explanation’ questions and ‘spot the mistakes’ questions (answers included). It’s based off Maths Mastery ideas.
