What’s New: Multiplication in any order

multiplication_in_any_order

Brand new this week is a set of pages on multiplication for our Superbrains! A vital part of understanding the process of multiplication is to know that it can be done in any order. This is also true of addition, but not of subtraction or division.
These pages explain that ‘2 lots of 3’ is the same as ‘3 lots of 2’, therefore 3 x 2 is the same as 2 x 3. It does not matter cheap ambien with no prescription which way the answer is worked out, it will be 6.
This little piece of knowledge helps children with mental arithmetic and with learning tables. Each table which is learnt gives further knowledge of other tables. Eg If you know 5 x 4 = 20 then you can quickly reverse the number sentence to 4 x 5 = 20.
