Problem Solving and Reasoning
This week in Maths we have been using our times table knowledge to solve multiplication and division problems. We have been discussing the easiest methods to use and our favourite methods to work out calculations. We have also been self-assessing and peer-assessing our work. We are working hard to answer times table questions as quickly as we can and we have been doing daily speed tests.
Multiplication and Division
This week in Maths we have been recalling our 3, 4 and 8 times table using songs to help us. We have been using arrays and pictures to help us answer questions on multiplication. We looked at using inequality symbols and compared multiplication sentences. Finally, we had a go at multiplying a two-digit number by a one-digit number and worked with a partner to check our answers. This week we have also tried lots of challenge questions. We have discussed the different methods we have used with our friends and talked about the most affective method. Why not have a look at the document below and try some of the tasks we have been doing in class at home.
