Includes a D.I.Y. Multiplication Calculator cut-out. Can be used creatively in many ways. Allows for differentiated tasks as the higher place values can be set to zero. My favourite game to play is by writing a product on the board and students move their factor strips to find as many combinations as possible to arrive at the product. Answers can then be verified using the multiplication grid provided. They also enjoy using this calculator during word problem tasks as well as in their free time to make number sentences to form their own stories. Can also be used in conjunction with dice or dominoes.
Word problem templates, spider diagram worksheets and Multiplication Mystery colour-ins are also included; all of which allow for differentiation.
Spider diagrams can be used in conjunction with Halloween themes.
The Multiplication Mystery colour-ins keep them intrigued as they're keen on solving the mysterious problem. A fun activity to set a timer to race to solve the mystery that lies within.
