Race around the clock times tables

Race around the clock times tables

A worksheet that can be used to test times tables. The children write whatever times table they are doing (4x, 8x etc) in the star in the middle of the sheet and times the number on the outside of the track by that number. They then write the answers of the times table in the boxes in the inside of the track. Lower ability children can be asked to +2, +4 etc to the number on the outside of the track instead of completing times tables. Give children 2 or 3 minutes to complete the race. Photocopy back to back and ask higher ability children to complete both sides. I made this worksheet during a teaching practice with Year 3 - it works well.

This activity allows children to apply two properties to one number (an aspect still underdeveloped in L4 and L5). There are a range of grids here for a range of abilities.

Number Grids

Number Grids

Suitable for any key stage. Make any size number grid from 2 by 2 up to 15 by 15 by simply inputting the size you want (doesn’t have to be a square grid). There are 3 sheets - one starting at the top left (eg for T Totals or Multiplication Tables), one starting at the bottom left (eg for Number Stairs or Snakes and Ladders) and one which allows you to select which multiples are to be shown. Then simply print off any that you have created. Number Grid 2 allows two multiples to be highlighted simultaneously. Can now be used up to 15 by 15 square.

Lattice Multiplication Tutorial Video - KS3

Lattice Multiplication Tutorial Video - KS3

Lattice multiplication was introduced to Europe in 1202 in Fibonacci’s Liber Abaci. It is a method of multiplying large numbers using a grid. This method breaks the multiplication process into smaller steps, which some students find easier. Digits to be carried are written within the grid, making them harder to miss. This video is a tutorial showing the method of learning how to multiply large numbers, ideal for KS3.
