Creative Multiplication Methods
The worksheet below is more a guidance document for parents than it is a worksheet. It includes notes and examples that parents can use to explore different methods of multiplying numbers with their children. This exploration will help encourage children to experiment and develop their number sense.
- Creative Multiplication (6-page with guidance notes and examples)
The documents below provide printable multiplication cards that show different representations of multiplication. e.g. conventional number sentences, grids, arrays of objects. One possible activity is to lay the cards out face up and encourage your children to pick up as many as possible that represent the same multiplication operation.
