## Lesson details

### Key learning points

- Multiples of 8 are multiples of 2 and of 4
- If you double the multiples of 2 you get the multiples of 4
- If you double the multiples of 4 you get the multiples of 8
- If you double the multiples of 2 and double again you get the multiples of 8

### Common misconception

Lack of fluency in 2s, 4s, or 8s times tables can mean that pupils struggle to generalise rules of and relationships within multiples of 2, 4 and 8

Take time to practically model grouping a set of objects in different ways. For example, take 24 straws and clearly show how groups of 2, 4 and 8 can be made. Discuss the relationships focusing on doubling and halving.

### Keywords
