More practice with doubling numbers and using arrays to understand multiplication, but it is now down to the serious task of learning ‘tables', especially the 2x, 3x, 4x, 5x and 10x tables. Once these have been learned children can move on to mentally multiplying larger numbers by 4, 5 and 10.

A great way to show how multiplication works is by using arrays. 3 rows of 4 means 3 lots of 4. This means 4 x 3 or 3 x 4.
