Multiplication in Lerryn Class 7 May 2014

We have been learning to use the grid method to multiply TU x U. First of all we had to partition the 2 digit number into tens and units (TU). Next we had to multiply both parts and finally we had to use our column addition skills to add the two answers together to find the solution. We enjoyed our multiplication so much that we didn’t even notice that it was playtime! Next steps will be to multiply HTU x U.
