How many different ways can we partition numbers?
Using counters and working in pairs, we investigated different ways of partitioning numbers we started by partitioning into, for example, 2,456= 2,000+400+50+6 and then we went further and partitioned in more flexible ways by mixing the different place value counters. For example, 2,456=1000+1400+40+16. We found out there were many ways to partition the numbers!
How many different ways can we represent a number?
Today in maths we revised all the place value we learnt in Year 3 by using equipment, drawings and calculations to nt numbers in a variety of different ways to show our understanding of the place value of different digits. We worked in groups, pairs and individually.
