### Materials

1. Division Board.
3. 9 Green Skittles.
4. Division tables to work.
5. Summary of division tables up to 81.
6. Mix sum cards (stage 1-3).

### Presentation

1. Directress introduces the child to the Division Board and selects a division table to work with.
2. For the first question, 24/9, Directress takes 9 skittles and says, "These 9 skittles represent 9 children".
3. And she places the skittles along the top of the board.
5. At the end, the child will find that he could not divide the beads equally.
6. After distributing 2 beads each to a child, the remainder 6 beads could not be divided equally.
7. Hence, we move the remainder 6 beads down to the bottom of the board and explain to the child that 24 divided by 9 is equal 2 remainder 6.
8. Remove 1 on the skittle and now we have 8 skittles.
10. The child will find that each skittle (child) has 3 beads.
11. Hence, 24 divided by 8 is equal 3.
12. Encourage the child to work through the Division Table.

### Control Of Error
