This is a 22-page resource I initially created for reinforcing the multiplication table to my students.
For a long time, my young students could not get the concept of "multiples,” so it I simply used the concept of “products found on the multiplication tables.”
Later, when I had to teach about multiples of a number, I developed the present resource, which provided students the opportunity to:
- Practice multiples of a number by multiplying it with other numbers, using the definition: “A multiple of a number is any product of that number and a whole number (a number which is not a fraction, an integer).”
- Deduce general facts & do specific observations about multiples, such as:
- every number is a multiple of itself;
- every number is a multiple of 1;
- every number has an infinite number of multiples;
- multiples of 2 are even numbers and end in 0, 2, 4, 6 or 8; and multiples of 5 always end in 0 or 5. Multiples of 10 always end in zero;
I hope you will enjoy this resource and find it as useful as it was for me.
