Students learn how to perform addition with decimal numbers using the column method. More able students are challenged to calculate the product of 2 more digit numbers using factorisation.

The start of the lesson is used to develop student's numerical reasoning. In the main, students learn how to use the place value table to calculate the product of a decimal and integer. The plenary challenges students to calculate the product of two, two digit decimals using place value and factorisation.
