Visual Maths- What does multiplication look like?

Some of us have been learning to count in sets, also known as multiplication. But most importantly, we've been learning what these sets look like and thinking about strategies we can use to work them out.

It's important that our brains have a clear picture of the amounts we are working out.  Maths research shows that the visual pathways in our brain light up when we are working out maths problems. 


We can make maths visual by using grids, arrays and number lines.



Here are some of our multiplication arrays that we've been working on.
