# Division Rules!

Begin by deciding which number you are going to be dividing by. This is your divisor.

Your challenge is going to be to come up with some rules for this divisor.

Now generate a three-digit number. This is your dividend.

Use the spinners here to generate the digits, you could use dice or could just use your imagination!

Now divide your dividend by your divisor. Record the answer.

Create other dividends and divide them by the same divisor.

Look carefully at the answers and answer the following questions:

When is the answer a whole number? When is there a remainder of 1?
Can you spot any patterns?
Can you come up with any rules?

# Multiplication Squares!

In the 2Γ2 multiplication square below, the boxes at the end of each row and the foot of each column give the result of multiplying the two numbers in that row or column e.g. 7 x 5 = 35 or 4 x 5 = 20.

The 3Γ3 multiplication square below works in the same way. The boxes at the end of each row and the foot of each column give the result of multiplying the three numbers in that row or column.

Can you find the missing numbers?

The numbers 1β9 may be used once and once only.

Challenge – Is there more than one possible set of answers for each row or column?

## Staying safe online

Task 1 – Think about your ‘digital footprint’. What do you do when you are online? Which websites do you visit? Which Apps do you use? Which gaming platforms do you log into? Who do you send messages to?

Draw an outline of a footprint like the one below in your book. Write all the ways you use the Internet inside your footprint. Ask a parent or friend to look at your footprint to check you have remembered to include everything you do online. π

Click on the link below to read a presentation on Internet safety. Pay attention – there is a quiz after this. π

# Subtraction Surprise!

In the video below, Alison chooses some three-digit numbers and carries out some calculations which lead to a surprising result!

Watch the video. What do you notice?
Can you figure out the steps that Alison carries out in each calculation?

Record all your calculations in your book. Write down everything you notice as you work.

Choose some three-digit numbers of your own.
(Make sure the first and third digits are different)
Is there a pattern to all the answers?

Now watch the videos again. This time, all three subtractions are carried out at the same time.
You may wish to pause the video at certain points, or watch it several times.

What is the same in each example?
What is different?

Does every example lead to the same answer?
Can you use what you noticed in the video to prove it?
