The leap from addition and subtraction to learning long multiplication can be a daunting task for many children.
The strategy used in this worksheet teaches how to multiply a larger 2-digit number by a 2-digit number using partitioning and horizontal written methods. It makes reaching the finishing line easy every time for independent learning, homeschooling or classroom teaching!
Multiplication by partitioning involves breaking a number into the values of its digits, which we multiply separately and then add at the end. Partitioning means breaking a larger number down into two or more numbers. With this worksheet children will develop a firm foundation to understand column maths with carrying over for 3-digit numbers, which is explained in the next worksheet: Multiplication 4.
In a nutshell: Confidence breeds more confidence! And, hands on practice in multiplying does wonders for confidence and gradual skills development. Whether homeschooling, working independently or in classroom teaching, this math worksheet will make learners win and brighten the day.
