Coming soon: Multiplication, square numbers and symmetry

rocket4Next week we look at the concept that multiplication can be done in any order, suitable for Year 3. Put at its simplest, 4 lots of 5 is the same as 5 lots of 4 or 4 x 5 is the same as 5 x 4. Children should have had a lot of experience with arrays which are a great way to show this.

Also coming soon is the second in our square numbers series for Year 5 which looks at what numbers will make a square using an array or colouring a grid. In many ways this is a similar theme to the multiplication above.

Thirdly, we have our first reflective symmetry worksheet for year 2.
