Engage and develop pupils knowledge of multiplication and division.
Multiplying and dividing are at the heart of much of what pupils need to do in Maths - think about place value, percentages and fractions, for example – they all depend on knowledge of multiplying and dividing.
Utilising this interactive resource, pupils can rotate the board to see visually that 3 x 5 is the same as 5 x 3. If pupils have a solid understanding of multiplicative structures that they can apply fluently to problems, whether simple or complex, they will be successful in Maths. When pupils are first learning about multiplication, Array boards help them to see, in an instant, the commutative nature of multiplication and they will quickly learn how to use that understanding to solve problems fluently and flexibly, making their own decisions about efficient ways to calculate.
