Multiplication Examples In the World Around You
Look for examples of multiplication in the world around you.
Example: A Box of Eggs
There are 2 rows of 6:
- you can count 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12
- but it is easier to do 2 × 6 = 12
Sketch the multiplication you find, and show how it is easier to multiply than to count.
Look for things like ice cubes in a tray, chocolates in a box, tiles on a wall, paving stones, etc.
