Lesson 5: Dividing Using Repeated Subtraction


Make equal groups using repeated subtraction.

Instructions for Use

Number Line Bars allows you to practise division using repeated subtraction on a number line.

Click the “–” next to “Zoom”, then scroll the bar at the bottom to the left until 0 is at the left of your screen. Choose a total you wish to divide. Choose the number of groups you want to divide the total into, and enter the number in the white box beside “New Bar.” Click “New Bar” to see the bar appear on the number line. Move the bar to end at your total, then continue to add new bars to the left of the bar until you reach 0.
