Maths 

Today you are going to use the grid method to work out multiplication questions. Watch this video here for an explanation. 

Grid Method Example

54 x 12 can be partitioned to give us (50 + 4) x (10 + 2)
this can be expanded to four simple multiplications which when added together give the final answer: (50 x 10) + (50 x 2) + (10 x 4) + (4 x 2).
This is done with the use of a grid as shown below:

Total up the columns and write the totals in the row at the bottom of the grid. Then finally add together those totals for the final answer. Here 54 x 12 = 540 + 108 = 648.

The Grid Method can be used to multiply very large numbers using a larger grid. 

 

Complete the attached challenges. Challenge 3 is spotting mistakes that others have made.
