Good morning!

 

Now before we start our work, it's important to warm our brains up. For Begum's Beasts, I want you guys practising your 7x tables today so please click here. I will give you a shoutout on our maths page tomorrow if you email me your score.

 

 

Well done to Jasmine yesterday who got a great score of 14!

 

 

For fire dragons- Please click here and pick a times table of your choice. I will give you a shoutout on our maths page tomorrow if you email me your score.

 

Well done to Olly who got 17 in the 10x tables.

 

For top banaynays, please try the Countdown mind boggler below. Now, I don't expect you to get the answer spot on, but whoever gets the closest in the class gets a shoutout tomorrow on the class page! I will also reveal the method that gets the correct answer. A tip: Don't be afraid to add numbers together before multiplying and also don't be afraid to use division to help you find the answer...

 

Yesterday, again, Cassius managed to get dead on 826.

This was his method:

 

75+8 = 83

83 x 10 = 830

830-4 = 826

 

Well done, Cass!

Today you will be revisiting the box method of multiplication. Look at the pictures below for a refresh!

This is how we set out the box method. We break the 23 and 15 down into their tens and ones.

Next we multiply. It doesn't matter which boxes we multiply first, but I suggest from right side to left.

When done, your box should look like this.

Now, we just need to add all the numbers together. Take all four of the answers you have just found, and write them out as a column addition. This is your final answer.

Now you're all caught up, please transfer you box method multiplications into the game below!
