## Slide deck

## Lesson details

### Key learning points

- Multiples of 4 are double the multiples of 2
- Multiples of 2 are half the multiples of 4
- Multiples of 4 are all multiples of 2 but not all multiples of 2 are multiples of 4

### Common misconception

Pupils may generalise the rule and assume that when dividing by 4 is the last digit is even, then the number is divisible by 4

Show children the relationship between 2s and 4s using the multiplication chart. Make clear that identifying the last digit as even is the first step - the last 2 digits should be a multiple of 4. Encourage discussions to highlight the relationship.

### Keywords

Multiple - A multiple is the result of multiplying a number by another whole number.

Doubling - Doubling is the act of becoming twice as many.
