# Year 1 Calculation - Division and Sharing

This quiz addresses the requirements of the National Curriculum KS1 Maths and Numeracy for children aged 5 and 6 in year 1. Specifically this quiz is aimed at the section dealing with division using concrete objects, pictorial representations and arrays.

Division in Year 1 usually means sharing into equal groups. This can be related to repeated subtraction and pictures, representations, arrays or objects. These are often used to support this. Division facts can be related to the correct multiplication. For example: if a child knows that 2 x 4 = 8,
then they should recognise that 8 ÷ 4 = 2, or 8 ÷ 2 = 4

This quiz will help children to become familiar with divisions using representations and arrays.
