Resources: for physically multiplying numbers together could include: an abacus, a 100 square, Cuisinaire rods, Numicon, Base 10 or simply use cubes or counters.

Generalisations:

• any number (m) multiplied by 1 is the same as the number you started with (m x 1 = m).

• any number (m) multiplied by another number (n) is the same as (n) lots of (m ), examples: (2 x 7) = (7 + 7), (5 x 4) = (5 + 5 + 5 +5).
• any number (m) multiplied by another number (n) can be re-written using the commutative law for multiplication (m x n) = (n x m), examples: (2 x 7) = (7 x 2) and (5 x 4) = (4 x  5).
