Coming Soon: Multiplication and percentages

rocket1Two maths worksheets for year 2 coming up next week. One looks at a vital part of understanding the process of multiplication: that it can be done in any order. This is also true of addition, but not of subtraction or division.
Setting up a little shop and buying and selling things has always been a great part of early maths, but usually this activity is limited to adding up and giving change. It can be used equally well to reinforce multiplication skills, as our worksheet shows.
We will also be publishing the second of our percentages worksheets for Year 5. It is typical of the English that we manage to write per cent in two different ways. Unlike the Americans who use ‘percent’, we use two words ‘per cent’, apart from when we write ‘percentage’ when we put it altogether.
