Short Multiplication

The start of the lesson reviews using the times table grid to calculate the products of two integers.   The development phase builds on this by introducing the Chinese Method as means to calculate the product of two, two or three digit numbers.  To extend this students begin to solve multiplication problems from real world contexts.
Differentiated Learning Objectives
  • All students should be able to calculate the product of a pair of integers involving tens and units.
  • Most students should be able to calculate the product of a pair of integers involving hundreds, tens and units.
  • Some students should be able to calculate the product of a pair of integers given in context.
