This week we are going to revise written multiplication, starting with short multiplication and then progressing on to long multiplication. This will also help you to look over your tables again. This is an important area in maths and it's important that we take the time to revisit it.
Let's revise our multiplication tables. There is a table song below, two games that you can play, plus a document of all your multiplication tables.
Perhaps you could also play a game of Buzz in your house? You may have to give your folks time to revise their tables first though!
This video will talk you through how to complete short multiplication questions.
Here are some short multiplication questions for you to complete. You don't need to print these off - answer them in your books.
The three documents are similar, but do get progressively harder with bigger numbers.
Now that you've revised and mastered short multiplication, it's time to proceed merrily to long multiplication :-)
The tricky part is remembering to do each part of the long multiplication sum. These videos will talk you through the different steps. Don't forget to add your zero when you come to multiply by the tens column.
