              Short Division

              The start of the lesson reviews calculating the products of single digit integers.   The development phase builds on this by introducing the ‘box method’ of division.  A times-table grid is provided as an additional resource to support students if necessary.  As the lesson progresses students begin to consider division with decimal numbers.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to divide any integer by a single digit.
              • Most students should be able to divide a decimal by a single digit.
              • Some students should be able to divide one by another for a problem given in context.
