HWPS Gr 1/2 Learning Hub

A place to share our learning


on October 20, 2016


Year 1 and 2 have been continuing their investigation of open-ended Numeracy problems, currently focusing on division. Today’s problem involved buying one or more chocolate blocks and sharing the squares out. But, as ever, the problem is how many people do you share it between? There were 3 chocolate bars to choose from, having 6, 24 or 30 squares.

How many squares would each person get if you shared one bar between 2 people? What about 4 people? 6 people? What if you were feeling super generous and shared it between 8 people?

What if you bought 2 or more blocks of chocolate?

We encourage families to bring Numeracy into the home by investigating a sharing problem with your child.

Happy sharing,

The Year 1 and 2 team
