## Word problems using Division

When teaching the 'chunking' method of division, I could not find any decent word problems for my class, so I had to make some up. Here they are, with answers, for anyone else in the same situation. Eight questions, getting trickier, ending with two-step problems.

#### Mean, median, mode & range - reminder rhyme

A simple poster, that reminds pupils which method to use to find the mean, median, mode and range of a data set. Based on Hey Diddle Diddle, it's illustrated with colour-coded examples as well as a fiddle-playing cat.
Could be part of a maths display, an on-screen reminder during a lesson or as a table mat.
(I found the original rhyme from another resource on this site, but have adapted it)

#### Sequence Ratio Worksheet - Differentiated

This is a nice activity to introduce the idea of ratio, by using sequences. Suitable for KS2.<br />
<br />
I found it useful to use pieces of card (e.g. 1 yellow for every 2 blue) to visually demonstrate beforehand (using volunteers - each holding the correct ratio) and show how to record this into a table on the whiteboard as you go, before using this resource as the main activity. <br />
<br />
I also allowed children to use counters at their table to aid them whilst completing the worksheet, as this was very beneficial to some learners.
