This term we will be learning to quickly recall...
Multiples of 2, 5 and 10 (mixed) and 'anchor doubles':
5+4 6+5 7+8 and 9+8
Anchor doubles are taken from what we already know about double facts e.g.
"I know that double 9 = 18 so I know that 9 + 8 = 17 because 8 is one less than 9"
We will also be solving any 2 digit + 2 digit number by using partitioning or the column method...
Partitioning Column Method
(carry tens underneath if needed)
...and solving any 2 digit - 2 digit number by bridging the gap or the column method...
Bridging the gap Column Method
1. Children write both numbers either side of the
empty number line. 2. First jump to the next multiple
of ten. 3. Jump to the final number. 4. Find the total of the
two jumps to find the answer.
A great way to learn the multiplication tables is by singing them, so enjoy the following songs:
