Numeracy - Main Math Activity


This week we are going to focus on multiplication.  Multiplication is where you take one number and add it a number of times e.g. 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 = 10.  This can become quite tedious after a while.  Multiplication is a quicker way of adding one number lots of times.  We also have a special sign when we write a multiplication sum - that sign is x e.g. 5 x 2=10.


I have added a few videos to refresh your memory about the strategies we can use when counting in 2s, 3s, 4s and 5s.  PLEASE watch them before starting your work.
