Years 3 & 4: Multiplication and Division

This list consists of visual resources, activities and games designed to support the new curriculum programme of study in Years 3 and 4. Containing tips on using the resources and suggestions for further use, it covers:
Year 3: Recall and use multiplication and division facts for the 3, 4 and 8 multiplication tables, write and calculate mathematical statements for multiplication and division that they know, including for two-digit numbers times one-digit numbers, using mental and progressing to formal written methods, solve problems, including missing number problems, involving multiplication and division, including positive integer scaling problems and correspondence problems in which n objects are connected to m objects.

Year 4: Recall multiplication and division facts for multiplication tables up to 12 × 12, use place value, known and derived facts to multiply and divide mentally, including: multiplying by 0 and 1, dividing by 1, multiplying together three numbers, recognise and use factor pairs and commutativity in mental calculations, multiply two-digit and three-digit numbers by a one-digit number using formal written layout, solve problems involving multiplying and adding, including using the distributive law to multiply two-digit numbers by one-digit, integer scaling problems and harder correspondence problems such as n objects are connected to m objects.
