Standard method of short multiplication pg 2

short-multiplication-2Here is another maths worksheet to practice the standard method known as short multiplication. All these sums have already been set out in the correct way but it is important to remember to keep the units in the units, tens in the tens column etc. This will become even more important when decimals are introduced later.

Always work in the same order, starting by multiplying the units, carrying any tens on into the tens column and then multiplying the tens. Perhaps the key to success with these is knowing the times tables up to 10 times 10. If each multiplication has to be worked out the whole task becomes laborious.
