E2.8 Divide two-digit whole numbers by single-digit whole numbers and express remainders

Subject content [reformed] functional skills: Mathematics (DfE, Feb 2018):

A good way for learners to understand the importance of using reverse calculations to check an answer to a previous question.  These check questions are appearing more and more in functional skills exams. I hope you find it as useful as  I and my learners do.

This is an adaptation of the excellent http://www.math-aids.com/Multiplication/Times_Tables_Target_Circles.html where learners have to do division and multiplication to complete a ‘target’. The advantage with this file is that it works offline, so you can print table activities, starters or extension activities ready for the class.
