Practical Multiplication in Year 3

Today in maths the children were looking at multiplying 2 digit numbers by 1 digit numbers. They realised that multiplication is the same as repeated addition and saw that 32 x 3 is just three lots of 32.

With this conceptual understanding, the children began to practically make the multiplication calculations using the Dienes blocks.

"I was able to use my understanding of partitioning numbers to make the number and then solve the calculation" - Lewis, Sequoia

Great job year 3! You are going to be multiplication masters in no time!
