*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 solving multiplication and division questions.*

Using multiplication and division to solve word problems begins with understanding the associated language, such as 'groups of' or 'multiplied by' for multiplication and 'shared equally' and 'divided by' for division. Solving problems set in real contexts, such as shopping or sharing toys or sweets is an important and useful skill.
