Learning Focus- Multiply 3 numbers

Remember:

1) Children are introduced to the ‘Associative Law’ to multiply 3 numbers. This law focuses on the idea that it doesn’t matter how we group the numbers when we multiply e.g. 4 × 5 × 2 = (4 × 5) × 2 = 20 × 2 = 40 or 4 × 5 × 2 = 4 × (5 × 2) = 4 × 10 = 40

2) They link this idea to commutativity and see that we can change the order of the numbers to group them more efficiently, e.g. 4 × 2 × 5 = (4 × 2) × 5 = 8 × 5 = 40

1.  Watch the video.

Watch this video below which goes through multiplying 3 numbers together.

2.  Work through the Powerpoint attached below.                                                                                                                                             The Powerpoint includes a toolbox which is simply the new learning for today. Children should play the sideshow from the beginning and complete any examples in their workbook.

3.  Complete the  worksheet which can be found in your home learning pack.                                                                           Answers will be provided shortly via Parent Hub App.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    4.  Challenge: As a bonus challenge, children can complete the WRM extension.                                                                    The challenge is not in your home learning pack and should be completed in your workbook.
