Worksheet Overview

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!
