# Year 2 Calculation - Division

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 6 and 7 in year 2. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with using related division facts to perform written and mental calculations.

Year 2 children should begin to understand the relationship (or facts) between multiplication and division, and learn how they can use that relationship to check their answers. For example, if they calculate that 3 x 4 = 12, than they could check by calculating that 12 shared into 4 equal groups would give 3 in each group. Knowing and using the division facts will help with this.
