A World Without Maths The relationship between multiplication and division

A World Without Maths The relationship between multiplication and division

Baz and Dave need to share out some kittens ready to go to their new homes! At first it seems simple, eight kittens shared between four friends. Things quickly get more complicated when they discover Sally is allergic to cats. She can’t take any kittens, and Mrs Barker has all those dogs. There are remainders involved, new calculations to solve and the inverse to be explored. This sounds like a job for Divider Girl and Multiplication Boy! The superheroes of A World Without Maths show Baz and Dave that they both have the skills to help solve this problem. But who will be the first to get to the bottom of it? Will they manage to find new homes for all those cute fluffy kittens? And will Baz ever get that cup of tea he was after? Teacher notes: You could present your class with the same problems as the story and give them toys and boxes or sorting hoops to act out the problem. They might use an existing array to talk about how many dots are in each row, how many rows there are and how many dots there are in total.
