Division and Multiplication are inverse operations
Procedure:
• Reminds the pupils that Division and Multiplication is an Inverse Operations• Say:
72 ÷ 3 means how many lots of 3 are there in 72. You can find the answer bychunking, along a number line:
0306063 66 69 7210x310x3 3 3 3 3All together, it took 24 lots of 3 to get to 72 so 72 ÷ 3 =24• Demonstrate with dices, biscuits or cubes.• Reminds the pupils that Division andMultiplication is an Inverse Operations• Look at these examples:
12 x 13 = 15613 x 12 = 156156 ÷ 12 = 13156 ÷ 13 = 13
• Can you see a pattern? Multiplication and division are
inverse
operations; thismeans they are the opposites of each other. By knowing the answer to one of theabove problems you can work out all the others.• Work out the other problems in each of these groups:
6 x 7 = 427 x 6 = ?

42 ÷ ? = 7

? ÷ 7 = 6
