5 Times Tables and Division using a multi-sensory approach
Once the 10 times tables and related division facts are securely in place we want to next begin work on linking the 10 times tables to the 5 times tables. It is important to first know how to half multiples of 10 (see our previous blog post) and then we can begin working on 5 times as half of 10 times.
In this video Cat uses dot pattern representations, glass nuggets and Cuisenaire rods to show different visual ways of linking 10x to 5
