## Lesson details

### Key learning points

1. Counting in fours can help to solve problems
2. Counting in fours can be represented in different ways
3. The 4 times table can be represented as multiplication equations

### Common misconception

Pupils often confuse the keywords of this lesson and use them interchangeably or incorrectly. Pupils may also not understand how to deduce the operation for the calculation.

Model correct usage in a range of contexts including labelling abstract equations and using the terms to identify the known elements in worded problems. Choral response can also support pupils using these words correctly.

### Keywords

• Factor - Numbers we can multiply together to get another number are known as factors.

• Product - The answer when two or more values are multiplied together is the product.

Use every opportunity to rehearse and chant multiplication facts including skip counting and chanting multiplication tables to support fluency. Consistently highlight keywords which point out the operation for the calculation.
