MD 2 – DIVIDE BY 2 IN 2 WAYS, RELATE TO HALVING

Children investigate dividing even and odd numbers by 2 in 2 ways – into ‘groups of 2’, and into ‘2 equal groups’.
They relate dividing by into ‘2 equal groups’ to halving the group.
From Year 3 onwards, when children divide by whole numbers, seeing division as ‘___ equal groups’, allows them to develop their understanding of the relationship between division and fractions (dividing by 2 is the same as halving). Seeing division as ‘groups of ___’ allows children to divide by fractions.
