Remember to practise your 2, 3, 4, 5 and 8 times tables and related division facts every day for the next few weeks!

Today we’ll be learning how to do short division (bus stop) method!


 What is a quotient?  .

The answer to a division problem is the quotient.



Look at the following example:

The balls need to be shared equally between 3 party bags.

The number being divided is 7 (=dividend)

3 is the number of groups (=divisor)

The quotient is 2 (on top of the bus stop/division symbol)

The 6 stands for the 6 balls that have been shared into the two groups.


Notice the short division layout!!!


In the next example, we will look at the layout using base-10 equipment ones.

13 ÷ 4

Watch these short division video clips and practise the correct division layout!
