The 4 Times Tables fall into the “Use Doubles” Number Facts Strategy. To create a 4 Times Table Fact, students need to double their number (2x) and double it again (4x) — or double-double!
The Double-Double Cauldron (bubble, bubble toil and trouble) makes a great wall display to remind students of the 4Times Table strategy.
NB Students should be familiar with their 2 Times Tables and have conceptual understanding of “doubling a double” prior to learning their 4 Times Tables Facts.
