Task 2: Maths

LO: Multiplication patterns

Today we will be exploring the patterns which different multiplication tables create on a 10 x 10 square. We will begin by sharing the efficient mental strategies which allow us to identify multiplication facts in the 6x and 12x multiplication tables. We will then explore other multiplication tables, shading the multiples and exploring the patterns, similarities and differences that exist within them.
