This set of worksheet was made to practise the “Compensate Strategy” for mental multiplication skills. I have made 3 different kinds of worksheets to differentiate for the children in your class. The low level has the sums provided and the steps broken down into columns with boxes for each digit. The higher level is the same except instead of boxes there are only lines.
My children were having trouble setting this out and seeing the steps to the strategy, so these worksheets were created.
I have laminated the two blank styles for the children to use dry erase pens on. Great for a centre activity.
Poster to explain strategy included.
Alternatively you can print as worksheets or assessment.. A4 and A5 have been included.
