Common misconception

Pupils often confuse the keywords of this lesson and use them interchangeably or incorrectly.

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.

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

The focus of this lesson is recognition of multiples of threes and connecting this to tables facts. Use every opportunity to rehearse and chant multiplication facts including skip counting and chanting multiplication tables to support fluency.
