You will find below some multiplication methods that our class investigated. The children worked hard to create quality videos to explain their favourite method. Have a look at the videos, and don’t forget to answer our question at the end: which is YOUR favourite method? We’d love to hear about it!

  1. Hello UP Mathmagicians,

    Well done for sharing your maths thinking and strategies. I voted for the area model, this seemed to fit best with my thinking. It is fantastic that you are exploring different ways of working out multiplication. I look forward to the next posting.
    PS: The Wild Mikes could do with a hair cut!
