In Math in Term 3, we focus on mastery and instant recall for multiplication facts up to 5x5 and their related division facts. We look at multiplication in many different ways such as repeated adding (5+5+5 = 15 is the same as 3x5 = 15) and making arrays. We also discuss repeated subtraction and making equal groups when learning to understand division.

We have already started practicing our facts and making equations for given arrays.

Any family games with counting, adding or subtracting money/points or problem solving are wonderful for keeping skills sharp. My favourite is Yahtzee as it uses repeated addition as multiplication. Card or dice games are also great for practicing Math skills!

Here are some resources that can help support your child's learning.
