This is one of my favourite lessons to teach because the pupils LOVE IT... kids like multiplying as a general rule, because they did so much at primary school probably. However, most of them have never seen different methods and this lesson can massively help understanding of number!! and thus it is fun and really effective !!!
Methods include Babylonian, grid, Chinese, Egyptian, Russian and Mayan. Some might think this is NOT important, but actually what you are doing is developing a much deeper level of understanding of number, patterns and will push pupils to ask really deep learning questions, such as why does this work? It is a two-lesson resource, that includes starters, answers, excellent clear teaching slides with examples, a worksheet that will cover both lessons and plenary.
This is the fourth lesson of an excellent series on core number skills so that you can also purchase a bundle at a reduced price.
