5 Times Tables and Division using a multi-sensory approach

Cat Eadle 

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

Look out for a great game towards the end of the video – the game sheet is free to download here –
