Homework doing your head in? Read wish-I'd-known tips from other parents on Mumsnet's Education pages.
DD1 is doing well in Y2 maths, but does ask me questions about partitioning. I have absolutely no idea how to do this, but it seems quite important to be able to show their answer on a number line.Any books on this?
42+12= 40+10=50 2+2=4 50+4=54Its the tens and units split up then added together.
Not sure how do it on a numberline though
Just looked at it again it would be possible but wouldn't you need 3 separate numberlines???
Unless you just do the final answer 50+4=54............I'm going to shut up now
ok, thanks. So it's separating into tens, ones etc...
For 42+12, you'd put 42 at the start of the number line, jump on 10 then jump on 2.
I recommend Maths for Mums and Dads to all of my parents. It's very user-friendly and brilliant :-)
juniper thanks that has been doing my head in all day! , and off to amazon I go to check out the price of that book.
