Primary Progression in Multiplication Videos

This suite of videos, from the National Centre for Excellence in the Teaching of Mathematics (NCETM), looks at elements of progression in multiplication across the primary school. The videos are:

Multiple representations of multiplication In the context of children practising table facts and developing fluency, Sam, a Key Stage One teacher, reinforces children’s understanding of the concept through pictures and symbols.

The Commutative Law for multiplication: Later in her lesson Sam introduces the commutative law for multiplication through the image of an array.

Grid multiplication as an interim step: Richard, a Lower Key Stage Two teacher, links the array to the grid method as an interim step for multiplication.

Moving from grid to column method: Debbie, an Upper Key Stage Two teacher, successfully introduces children to the compact algorithm.

Multiple Representations of Multiplication

This short clip is the first of a suite of videos which look at progression in multiplication at primary level. It follows Sam, a Key Stage One teacher as she reinforces children’s understanding of the concept of multiplication using the interactive whiteboard. Children are asked to match pictorial representations...

The Commutative Law for Multiplication

This clip is the second of a suite of videos which look at progression in multiplication at primary level. It follows Sam, a Key Stage One teacher as she demonstrates how the commutative law for multiplication may be introduced through the image of an array.

Children are asked to represent a...

Moving From Grid to a Column Method

This clip is the fourth of a suite of videos which look at progression in multiplication at primary level. It follows Debbie, in Upper Key Stage Two, as she introduces the children to the column method for multiplication.

Children start by carrying out a calculation using the grid method. Debbie then...

Grid Multiplication as an Interim Step

This clip is the third of a suite of videos which look at progression in multiplication at primary level. It follows Richard, in Lower Key Stage Two as he shows how to move children on from using an array to using the grid method for multiplication. Working with a small group of children he demonstrates how to...
