It is a good idea to keep reinforcing that multiplication can be seen as ‘lots of’. 3 lots of 2p can be written as 2p x 3, or, as multiplication can be done in any order, just 3 x 2 will get the correct answer.
Our latest set of four worksheets looks at this in terms of the 2x, 5x and 10x tables, using coins to help, and is good practice both at counting on and learning tables.
Some children will use the coins to count up whilst others who have learnt their tables will be able to work out the answers ‘in their heads’ quite quickly.
