Year 2 Autumn Term Block 4: Multiplication and Division
To begin with multiplication can be seen as repeated addition. The use of arrays can also help children understand multiplication. Once happy with understanding what multiplication is children can move on to the 2 times table: bar modelling can illustrate this table very well.
