Some people love it; some people hate it. But everyone has to do it. Struggle Easy Painful Hard work Battle Success When I was taught by Mr Hardy I could do it It came naturally to me Boring Pages of sums Enjoyable

How do our children learn in Maths lessons at Orleans? Lots of talking Thinking Self-discovery Problem solving Asking questions Real-life learning Practical and engaging lessons – fascinators! CB's CB's ‘I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand.’ (A Chinese proverb)

‘It just doesn’t look like it did in my day.’

Mental Calculations Why use a number line? Written Calculations

One of the most important concepts for children to understand 6 60 600 H T U Activity 2

+1 + 10 Addition Subtraction Multiplication Division 12 + 23 = 35

Same problem, different methods…

34 + 53 = 30 4 50 3 87

26 + 12 = + 10 26 +1 36 +1 37 42 + 36 = 42 62 + 20 + 10 +1 +5 72 77 78 38 78

Subtraction as taking away 30 – 17 = 13 30 15 20 - 5 - 10 - 2 13

Subtraction as finding the difference ( starting from the lower number and counting on to the largest) Jump to next multiple of 10 Count the jumps 10 + 3 = 13 20 – 7 = 13 7 1020 +3 + 10 20 – 7 = ?

35 54 80 9 89 + Add 10s first the units Building on mental calculation strategies: adding biggest number first

Year 1 Count in steps of 2, 5 and 10 Year 2 Recall multiplication facts for the 2, 5 and 10 x tables End of year expectations… Year 3 Recall multiplication facts for the 3, 4 and 6 x tables

What’s the best way to learn your tables?

Chanting or Singing Percy Parker www.learnyourtimestables.com Up and down the stairs Clapping, jumping, passing a ball etc YouTube

Reading and writing them Magnetic x tables Speed Tests Building up the x table number sentences ‘Know Your’ – www.ko-box.com Flash cards Missing number sentences

Find Patterns Hundred Square 7 x 8 (always a tricky one!) Answer first: 56 = 7 x 8. So it’s 5, 6, 7, 8. Easy! Find patterns in the numbers e.g. all even/all end in.../first digit goes up, last digit goes down X9 If you add the answer’s digits together, they add 9 e.g. 9 x 5 = 45 (4 + 5 = 9) If you know your 2x tables, then you can work out 4x any number. X by 2, then double it.

Games Online games – endless websites. See handouts for some. Multiplication War – pack of playing cards Board Games Snap X table apps on your iphone Origami Fortune Teller

There isn’t a truly pain-free answer because… Everyone learns in best in different ways Real fluency demands practise over weeks and months Drilling is the key! Practise, practise, practise! What’s the best way to learn your tables?

Early stages of multiplication

Multiplying as repeated addition 2 x 4 = 2 + 2 + 2 + 2 So, 2 x 4 = 8 0 24 2 x 4 68 +2

3 x 6 Add the dots Or

What multiplication are these arrays showing?

Partitioning x 25 x 3 = 20 5 36015 x = 75 75

12 3 = 0 6 3 912 Add the jumps = 4 4 groups of 3 + 3 4

Whilst children learn about numbers and maths at school, there are also lots of ways that you can support your child at home. It doesn’t have to be by doing pages of sums or text books – there are lots of fun activities and games you can do or include in your everyday routines! Here are a few ideas to help you…
