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 use place value counters to represent a calculation whilst jotting down working using the grid method. Children are then able to perform the calculations independently using the grid method and the counters to support them.
