Short Division [Bus Stop Method]
This is a unit of work that I planned for my Year 4 class for dividing 3-digit numbers by 1-digit numbers using a written method. We had covered mental methods leading into this unit which is reflected in Lesson 4's resources (selecting an appropriate method).

Each lesson can be split across 2 lessons, which is effectively what we did to ensure they had enough time to consolidate and move onto the deeper challenges.

L1: Dividing 2-digit numbers using short division
L2: Dividing 3-digit numbers using short division
L3: Finding missing values using inverse operations
L4: Selecting an efficient method to solve division problems
