This SMILE resource contains two packs of games, investigations, worksheets and practical activities supporting the teaching and learning of division, from simple division problems to converting between fractions and decimals.
Division pack one contains thirteen work cards with activities covering simple division by a single digit, dealing with remainders, finding patterns when dividing by 11 and 13, and estimating answers.
Division pack two contains nine work cards with activities requiring students to investigate dividing by the number 4, use a flowchart to spot patterns when dividing, and explore how ISBN numbers work and the role division plays.
SMILE (Secondary Mathematics Individualised Learning Experiment) was initially developed as a series of practical activities for secondary school students by practising teachers in the 1970s. It became a complete individualised scheme based around a network of activity cards and assessments. Related resources include answers to all of the cards and test books and answers.
