2K's Multiplication

October 23, 2019

We have explored multiplication in Maths this week. As a class, we have investigated the meaning of ‘lots of’ by using Cuisenaire rods to help us. With our partners, we chose a Cusienaire rod  and we lined up a different colour rod lots of times until it was the same size as the first. This helped us solve calculations using multiplication and to explain our answers. We also imagined our Cuisenaire were frogs! Each coloured rod could only jump a certain number of lily pads. This helped us to explore how many times a number was needed to solve our question. What super mathematicians we are!
