leftColBody  Cargilfield Mathematics ‘Patter’ There can be many different names for the same operation or calculation in Mathematics, and this can lead to confusion or even anxiety. The quick guide below details some of the more common methods used in Mathematics lessons in the Upper School, and the names by which they are known. 1. ‘Hats’ (^) and ‘Hops’
Example: 3.13 ÷ 0.02
The decimal point hops two to the right in both numbers, giving 313 ÷ 2.

The bus stop method is a simple way to divide; the name refers to the lines drawn in front of and on top of the number to be divided, which form the shape of a bus stop.
To divide by larger numbers, the children are encouraged to use factor pairs. Example: 10134 ÷ 18 The number 10134 would be divided by a pair of factors (3 and 6) which, multiplied, give the product 18 (2 and 9 could also be used).
A grid method (named after the 16^{th} century Edinburgh mathematician John Napier) is used for long multiplication. Complete the multiplication grid square, then add the columns diagonally, beginning at the bottom right, to get the final answer. FMac 28.2.19
