The leap from addition and subtraction to learning long multiplication can be a daunting task for many children. This step requires moving from horizontal written methods to column maths and is necessary to be able to calculate with large numbers.
With this worksheet learners can practice column maths with carrying over. They will easily progress from from horizontal written methods to doing column maths.
The strategy used in this worksheet teaches how to multiply a 2-digit number by a 2-digit number using partitioning and expanded columns. 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.)
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.
