How to multiply numbers

To multiply numbers together you can use a variety of written methods such as the column method, or a number line; or you could use a mental arithmetic method.

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

 Try using more than one method and practice checking your answers with a calculator.
