# The Division Workout - Division Facts Practice

Welcome to the Division Workout - our free and fun division facts practice activity.

We want to show how effective a little extra division practice at home can be, and to help parents support maths learning - we know what a difference this support can make to our children's learning outcomes.

The Division Workout is a three step activity that will help children towards achieving instant recall of division facts and truly mastering this important foundation maths skill.

Division is the natural complement to multiplication skills, so it's designed for children who are becoming confident with their tables and have already started to learn about dividing.

Plus, there's a certificate for each child who completes the challenge!

# STEP 1 - prepare the mindDividing numbers isn't as difficult as you think - in fact, you could almost think of it as just multiplying in reverse. Watch the video to find out:

So you can see it's not as tricky as you might think - you probably already know how to do it!

# STEP 2 - do the practice

The practice grid will help you get ready for the Division Workout. Use it as many times as you like, until you can complete each one correctly and quickly!

Why is speed important? When you've really mastered your division facts you'll be able to answer very quickly getting them right all the time. Once you've done this you'll know them for the rest of your life!

### The practice grid

Click on the orange squares and answer the question. If you can get around 30 correct in under five minutes, you're ready for the Division Workout Quiz!

# STEP 3 - take the Division Workout Quiz and get your certificate!

Great! You're now ready to take the Division Workout Quiz!

To begin the quiz you'll need your parent to register - this is because we email your certificate to them and let them know how well you have done.

Well done for taking the division quiz!  If you didn't do as well as you'd like, don't worry. Just come back, use the practice grid and take the quiz again.

As a maths teacher, I can't stress enough how important it is for children to master their division facts. When learners are able to fluently recall the answers to division questions it frees up working memory for applying maths to solve problems.
