This lesson will cover multiplying one-digit numbers with up to 2 decimal places by whole numbers. Students will first be taught how to use the column and grid methods to complete these calculations and reminded of the importance of place value. They will then practise using these methods on simple calculations and word problems.
Differentiated worksheets are provided which require students to first work out calculations mentally, then use the methods learnt with simple calculations and then with word problems. By the end of the lesson they will have consolidated their understanding of multiplying decimals by integers and been challenged to do so in context.
Answers are provided for the worksheets.
