Methods in Maths

At HBJS we teach several different methods for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division across school. These progress from methods in Year 3 and Year 4 where place value is very explicit, to methods in Year 5 and Year 6 where place value is much more implicit.
We hope these tutorials will help to guide you through the methods we teach in school in order for you to help your children at home. This list is not complete and your children may learn other methods as part of the Maths No Problem scheme which will lead to a deeper understanding of the underpinning mathematical concepts, however these methods will give you a good basis for working with your child.
