In this activity, we will be choosing facts to match a story.
First, we must decide what type of calculation is needed.
Then choose the right calculation.
Here is a division problem.
Ben has 36 toy cars and shares them into 3 piles.
The calculation needed is 36 ÷ 3
The answer would be 12.
Let;s try an example question together.
Tom's father is three times his age.
Tom is 10.
How old is Tom's father?
This is a multiplication problem.
We need to multiply Tom's age by 3.
10 x 3 = 30
Now it's your turn to try some questions like this. Good luck!
