Third class have started multiplication. Last week the boys and girls were showing various multiplication sentences using equal groups, arrays, repeated addition and using patterns on the 100 square. We played a two times board game, maths king and queen and practiced multiplication on different apps on the iPad. Also, we focused on the language associated with multiplication such as – groups of, times and the product.
The girls and boys will have to learn their multiplication tables each night for homework starting this week with x2. The children are told to focus on accuracy over speed- worry about being able to answer them correctly first and then we can focus being able to answer them fast.
