Differentiated short division task. Can be used as a worksheet or a thoughts and crosses.
Pupils work in pairs. Pupils aim to get a connect four – this can be straight across, diagonal or straight up the sheet. Creates really good discussion around each question. Both pupils complete each question – the person to choose the box wins the box if they get it correct but if they do not get it correct and their partner gets it correct they win the box. First to get connect four - wins.
Pupils can also complete as a differentiated worksheet.
Pupils can choose between red (foundation, fluency), amber ( little bit harder- the application of the skill), green (secure in the topic being taught, starting to solve problems) and blue (exceeding – pupils can work with skill taught in various contexts, reasoning).
Pupils show the questions, working out and answers that they have attempted in their class book.
Once pupils have spent however long you wish for them to work on the task. The solutions are provided so that pupils can see how much progress they have made.
This resource really got pupils using their mathematical oracy and discussing how you find remainders. It ensured pupils to use deep thinking to solve some of these problems.
