Multiplication and Division (Year 5)

In KS2 Maths, you'll learn cool stuff like multiplication and division. By Year Five, you'll be a times tables pro and tackle big numbers like a champ! Feeling confident? Great! You'll also master multiplying and dividing with fractions and decimals.

Multiplication and division are like sharing sweets. Easy ones, like giving 20 bananas to 4 monkeys (5 each), are simple. But watch out for tricky ones with decimals and fractions. Don't worry, once you get the hang of it, it gets easier! To multiply by 1/4, just divide by 4. It works for decimals too – multiplying by 0.25 is the same as dividing by 4.
