Three Part-Whole Model templates – standard Part/Whole model with two parts, plus a version with three parts and one with four parts.
In the Part-Whole Model a ‘whole’ is partitioned into ‘parts’. In the case of division, this would be equal parts. Partitioning is central to a host of calculation strategies where children work with smaller units or parts that are easier to work with.
Ideas for Use:
1: Partitioning Resources: A3 pages are printed out and children are able to use resources, such as cubes or place value counters within the model.
2: Standard Partitioning: e.g. partitioning 436 into 400 + 30 + 6
3: Non-standard Partitioning: e.g. partitioning 436 into 130, 300 and 6
4: Pages 5-10 can be printed out as recording sheets.
