Model multiplication and The Commutative Law in multiplication
Learning objectives:
 Y1: solve onestep problems involving multiplication and division, by calculating the answer using concrete objects, pictorial representations and arrays with the support of the teacher
 Y2: recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 2, 5 and 10 multiplication tables, including recognising odd and even numbers
 Y2: show that multiplication of 2 numbers can be done in any order (commutative) and division of 1 number by another cannot
 Y2: solve problems involving multiplication and division, using materials, arrays, repeated addition, mental methods, and multiplication and division facts, including problems in contexts
A wholeclass teaching tool.
A great tool to demonstrate that multiplication can be done ina ny order and that division is the inverse of multiplication.
Write a multiplication maths story, then press '=' to create an array.
Click on each column of the array and say 'That's time number 1. That's time number 2... etc
Rotate the array to demonstrate that multiplication can be done in any order.
Have fun!
