This presentation provides two days of teaching that cover the objectives:

- Multiply and divide numbers with up to two decimal places.

It includes starter activities, whole class teaching, group activities, practice sheets and mastery questions. It can be used on a variety of interactive whiteboards.

**Day 1 Teaching**

Use ITP ‘Number dials’ to show the 6 times table. Then click to select 0.6, hiding numbers in the outside boxes. Reveal the first few. Discuss what children notice. Each answer is 1/10 of answer for the 6 times table. Use this to multiply and divide decimal numbers, e.g. 4.2 ÷ 6, 4 × 0.06, 1.8 ÷ 6, 0.48 ÷ 6 etc.

**Day 2 Teaching**

Write 4 × 3.6 on the board and ask children to discuss how they could work this out. Draw out working out 4 × 3 and 4 × 0.6. Write 4 × 3.6 = (4 × 3) + (4 × 0.6) on the board. Repeat for 3 × 0.47.

This teaching is part of Hamilton’s Year 6 Decimals and Fractions block. Each Hamilton maths block contains a complete set of planning and resources to teach a term’s worth of objectives for one of the National Curriculum for England’s maths areas.
