Multiplication

This week your focus will be all areas of multiplication. Before multiplying harder numbers and applying your fluency skills to word problems you must practice your timestables. Knowing your timestables well, will make working out answers easier and quicker!

- Use timestables rockstars to help increase your speed and confidence!

- Try out some of the booklets below

- Watch and join in on timestables videos https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/supermovers/times-table-collection/z4vv6v4

- Recite your timestables outloud or in written form

Task 2: Multiply 2 digit numbers by a 1 digit number

Use your timetables knowledge to help solve multiplication problems. Remember to start with the ones first, you must multiply each number. Just like we learnt to do in school, write your working out in the brackets!

EXAMPLE:

28 x 3 =

2 8

x    3

2  4     (8 x 3)

6  0      (20 x 3)

8   4     (24 + 60)

Task 3: Multiply 2 digit numbers by a 1 digit number without layout support.

Use the same method as Task 2 to find the answers to these questions, without the support frame done from you.

1) 24 x 5 =

2) 31 x 4 =

3) 87 x 3 =

4) 91 x 2 =

5) 56 x 7 =

6) 72 x 8 =

7) 23 x 9 =

8) 12 x 6 =

9) 48 x 7 =

10) 25 x 9 =

Task 4: Multiply 3 digits by 1 digit.

Using the same method, solve these problems. Remember to show your working out in brackets and start with the ones, working your way up to the hundreds.
