The product known as the Division Working Charts explains how the function of the division tables work. Once children have worked through the division tables sensorially, the tables become second nature to them. It’s almost as if they absorb the knowledge naturally. How it works:
- the Child selects a division problem slip (sold separately), which asks a question,
- all the dividends, divisors and quotients on the 1st working chart (from 1 to 81) are reflected,
- children find the point of intersection where the horizontal dividend line crosses the vertical divisor line, and notes the answer which is displayed.
- this equation is found on the 2nd working chart. At the intersection of the two lines, the Child places the correct answer using the numbered tiles. This chart is not numbered in the blocks.
- the control chart is the 3rd smaller chart. It displays all the equations and answers from 1 to 81.
- if the answer to the problem division slip’s equation is the same as that shown on the control chart, then the Child knows that their answer is correct.
Contents found in the Division Working Charts:
- 3 charts and a box of numbered tiles.
- two of the charts are 81 x 28 x 2.5 cm, with a birch wood frame; working charts 1 and 2.
- the third chart is 45 x 22 x 1.5 cm in size, also with a birch wood frame; the control chart.
- the birch wood box has a loose lid in blue, with the divisor symbol on the lid.
- measures 8.5 x 8.5 x 4.5 cm and contains numbered tiles from 1 to 81.
