These FREE Multiplication Strategy posters compliment the Addition and Subtraction strategy posters you can also find (FREE) in my TPT store. The strategy names are consistent across the posters, to help your class make links between the different strategies they are using with different operations.
These posters provide visual support for your students as they begin to understand and use different mental maths strategies for solving multiplication equations during Number Talks. I also found these posters a helpful reference, as I was transcribing students' defence of their answers during Number Talks!
These posters use examples that are slightly more challenging. The example equations ask children to multiply a single digit by a 2 digit number. I found that I used these when I taught 4th grade (and they would be useful beyond 4th grade as well).
There are two additional sets of posters (also FREE) that use the same strategies, but the strategies are illustrated with easier equations (within the times tables children memorise) and more challenging equations (Tens x Tens). As all of the sets are FREE, you can choose which set or sets would be most helpful in supporting the mathematical reasoning of the children in your class.
My Multiplication Number Talks really took off in terms of growing student understanding when I started using Multiplication Dot Cards as well. Check them out!
