In preparation for the start of prac next week, my three mentor teachers have already asked me to prepare a couple of lessons to teach next week. In one of these lessons I will be revisiting double-digit multiplication, as this is a concept some of the students are struggling with. I have been told that some of the problems are as a result of students not knowing their times tables. In preparation for creating this particular lesson I came across a couple of SMART board resources.

The first is a multiplication table which can be adapted to your teaching context, by adding and removing numbers. This resource will be of particular interest when students practice their timetables.

The second is a tool for practicing/revising double digit multiplication and offers two methods (structures) to completing the operation.
