Stage 4: Short Division TU ÷ Single Digit (Bus Stop Method)

In Year 4, children will begin to learn the short division representation with the use of place value resources. Alongside pictorial representations and the use of models and images, children should progress onto short division using a bus stop method.

Place value counters can be used to support children apply their knowledge of grouping. Reference should be made to the value of each digit in the dividend.

Cuisenaire rods can also be used to reinforce this concept.

Short division of a two-digit number can be introduced to children who are confident with multiplication and division facts and with subtracting multiples of 10 mentally, and whose understanding of partitioning and place value is sound.
