This weeks maths homework will be a multiplication wheel for the 2s, 5s and 10s.
In the middle of the wheel it will tell you what number you will multiply by. In the example below, you will multiply by 2.
2 x 2= 4
2 x 3= 6
2 x 10 = 20
If your child gets stuck here is how you can help:
1. Explain that 2 x 3 is the same as 3 x 2.
2. 3 x 2 is 3 lots of 2. That will help them to understand that they need to count in 2s 3 times.
Extra optional challenge: once completed, create a wheel of your own.
