Once children have learned the 4 times table this calculator game can be played. Set up the calculator to be a 4 times table machine by pressing 4 x x = 0 and then all you have to do to multiply a number by 4 is to type the number and press equals (don’t delete the answer before pressing the next number). Choose a number on the grid and say it out loud, then try and make that number by entering a number on the calculator and multiplying it by 4 by pressing =. If correct place a counter on the grid. Continue taking in turns with the aim of getting 4 in a row.
Complicated? Why not try the game and see just how easy it is.
