In 6W, we have worked hard this week on using a formal written method for dividing. We learnt how to use long division. Initially we thought it was going to be tricky, but we came up with a systematic way to help us remember the process and we created a mnemonic to help us: Do Meerkats Swim Backwards (DSMB). This stands for Divide, Multiply, Subtract, Bring down!

We are excited about teaching our parents this method!
