Todays learning objective was to use pictorial strategies and the formal written method to solve problems.
After a times table warm up we stuck a place value grid to the tables and used counters to represent a number. Depending on what we were multiplying by duplicate counters were added. To find the answer counters were exchange when there were more than 10 in each column. we represented this in our books.
Using the formal written method calculations were solved using the counters if needed to show the exchange.
