This set of cards practises breaking 1 number in a multiplication computation and multiplying each part by the 1-digit multiplier. Students initially match the computation and the broken up strategy e.g. 35x4 matches 30x4 + 5x4. Numbers are broken into place value parts e.g. 36x4 as 30x4 +6x4 or compatible parts e.g. 29x4 as 25x4 + 4x4. All multipliers are the same so students don't just match the multiplier. The file also includes a set of cards with the answers which students can match after they have matched the initial strategy cards.
Recommendation: Copy each set of cards onto different colour paper before laminating to make finding pairs more efficient and effective.
