Sharing and Reasoning in Maths!

This week in Maths we have been using our knowledge of making equal groups of 2, 5 and 10 to begin sharing amounts equally between either 2, 5 or 10 people. In one of our lessons this week, the children had to choose a number and using their problem solving skills, they had to share their cubes/counters equally.

The children found that they were able to share 10 equally between 2, 5 or 10 people but they couldn’t with some odd numbers, including 17.

Great reasoning and problem solving Year 1!
