A differentiated product for teaching short multiplication.


Report Abuse


When teaching multiplication this week, I struggled to find a resource in which I needed. In Mathematics, I like a resource to be differentiated, while allowing the children to move up to a higher set themselves, if they find the work too easy.

This resource allows children to make great progress in one lesson as they can be challenged constantly, rather than completing page after page of the same type of calculation.

My class have not yet moved onto 2 digit multiplication, so it is differentiated by:
Bronze: TO x O (focusing mainly on the 2, 3, 4 and 5 times tables)
Silver: HTO x O (using a range including the 6, 7, 8 and 9 times tables)
Gold: THHTO x O (using a range including the 6, 7, 8 and 9 times tables)

Upon finishing the gold section, there is an additional section called platinum. This section allows a further challenge for children in completing missing calculation multiplication questions (answers included).

I have provided the success criteria at the top of the page, as I like to remind children constantly what they need to remember to do.

These files have been saved as a PDF and a word document.
