# NA3-2: Know basic multiplication and division facts.

This means students will know basic multiplication facts are those that range from 0 x 0 = 0 to 9 x 9 = 81. The division basic facts are the inverse of the multiplication facts. So 6 x 4 = 24, 4 x 6 = 24, 24 ÷ 6 = 4 and 24 ÷ 4 = 6 are all basic facts. Students should commit their basic facts to memory as soon as they understand the meaning of the equations and can use number properties to work them out, 8 x 7 = 56 means "eight sets of seven" and can be worked out by doubling 4 x 7 = 28. Note that 56 ÷ 7 can mean "fifty-six shared among seven" or "how many sevens are in fifty-six".

## Roughly how many?

- Numeracy activities
- Number and Algebra
- Level Three

In this activity we look at cubes which have been roughly sorted into arrays and decide **about** how many there are. We use our knowledge of multiplication facts to estimate the number of cubes.

## Multiple Patterns

- Numeracy activities
- Number and Algebra
- Level Three

In this activity we use a 1-100 grid to identify multiples of single digit numbers. In particular we are looking for patterns and how they could be used to identify multiples.

## Smiley Hundred

## A Prime Search

- Units of Work
- Number and Algebra
- Level Three

In this unit we use rectangular models or arrays to explore numbers from one to fifty. We practice expressing numbers as the product of two smaller numbers and in doing so identify the factors of a number. We are also introduced to prime numbers.
