Problem Solvers in Year 3!

Over the last couple of weeks the Year 3 children have been working on their multiplication and division skills.

We have been working on deepening our understanding of multiplicative reasoning through problem solving situations and word problems. This week we read through worded problems and thought about which operation they were asking us to do: multiply or divide.

We underlined important words then marked each word problem with the correct operation. We then cut them and made two separate piles, then used our new methods to answer them. We are working hard on 2 digit multiplication and dividing on a number line using chunking.

We are continuing to work on or reasoning of maths concepts through different problem solving opportunities.
