In Maths we have been learning to use a range of multiplicative strategies when operating with whole numbers.

The strategies we have been learning are:

estimation as a check

use multiplication to solve addition and subtraction problems

use doubling halving and trebling

use an algorithm to solve multiplicative problems

solve problems using simple cube numbers

estimation as a check

use an algorithm to solve multiplicative problems

solve problems using simple cube numbers

- Estimate the reasonableness of large problems like 1 788 – 891. Could 497 be right?

- Use multiplication to solve addition and subtraction problems eg.

64 – 48 = as (8 x 8) – (6 x 8) = 2 x 8= 16

- Use doubling / halving, trebling and adjusting to solve multiplication problems,

eg. 12 x 50 solved as 4 x 150= 600

- Use an algorithm to solve multiplication problems.

- Solve problems using simple cube numbers .

- Use an algorithm to solve division problems.

Here is a link to my Multiplicative Strategies Assessment which shows that I know why and how I use particular strategies. This doc also has screenshots to show which IXL activities I have completed as part of my learning.

My next step in my Maths Learning is…..My next step is to answer questions in Multiplicative Strategies faster so I can go rapidly through them.
