## Lesson details

### Key learning points

1. Adjacent multiples of 6 have a difference of 6
2. If you add 6 to a multiple of 6 you get the next multiple of 6
3. If you subtract 6 from a multiple of 6 you get the previous multiple of 6

### Common misconception

Pupils may not understand the key term 'adjacent,' and have difficult understanding the word problems.

Model correct usage in a range of contexts including labelling abstract equations and using the terms to identify the known elements in worded problems.

### Keywords

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

The focus of this lesson is using knowledge of multiples of six, and connecting this to adjacent multiples. Chorally rehearsing the 6 times tables at any given opportunity and playing games to support fluency.
